10% Loss of Incident Power through Solar Reactor Window: Myth or Good Rule of Thumb?

10% Loss of Incident Power through Solar Reactor Window: Myth or Good Rule of Thumb? It is known that a solar beam crossing a window losses 10% of its incident power. Yet, this affirmation is not supported by many published scientific evidences. In this work, a heat flux mapping method was used to determine the heat flux distributions at the focal spot of a solar concentrating device without and with a window on the incident beams' trajectory. The presence of a window on the beams' trajectory induces a 12% loss of the total power and a 11% decrease of the peak heat flux density. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Applied Solar Energy Springer Journals

Abstract

It is known that a solar beam crossing a window losses 10% of its incident power. Yet, this affirmation is not supported by many published scientific evidences. In this work, a heat flux mapping method was used to determine the heat flux distributions at the focal spot of a solar concentrating device without and with a window on the incident beams' trajectory. The presence of a window on the beams' trajectory induces a 12% loss of the total power and a 11% decrease of the peak heat flux density.
