Optical Performance Investigation of a CLFR for the Purpose of Utilizing Solar Energy in Turkey

Coskun Firat, Calik Keziban

Abstract


This study provides a feasibility analysis of the performance of a compact linear Fresnel reflector (CLFR) to be used in a renewable system for the energy demand in some cities in Turkey. The main idea of this work is to investigate whether it will be beneficial or not when CLFRs are used for energy production in Turkey. For this purpose, the optical performance of a CLFR system is investigated theoretically in six of the cities of different regions. The results obtained show that for residential and even for small size commercial usage of CLFR systems could satisfy a very huge amount of solar energy. When the energy need in different processes like heating, cooling, drying is considered, it is easily said that the collected solar energy by a CLFR system would be enough for energy need in many processes.
