Solid coolant method for investigating the collector efficiency curve from ambient to stagnation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We describe an experimental method for investigating the entire efficiency curve of an evacuated tube collector, using a solid aluminium rod rather than a liquid coolant. The method described is safer and cleaner than conventional methods.
