Abstract

Convection heat loss inevitably occurs in receivers of high concentrating solar concentrators. All the concentrators are need to be tack during the operation and hence the position of the receiver is changing continually. The angle of the receiver axis will then play an important role in the heat loss. Few researches were reported for the hemispherical cavity receivers numerically. The paper presented here is an experimental investigation natural convection heat loss from hemispherical cavity receiver. Cavity receiver of diameter 540 mm was tested. It is observed that the heat loss was minimum for 90° and maximum for 0°.
