Evaluation and Simulation of Reif’s Concentrated Solar Collector
|Water and electricity are one of the highest demanding elements within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. There are several effective systems are accessible on the area. The most common issue that these systems face a difficult way to generate power. Another important issue that these systems face is a way to deliver the water or electricity to neighborhoods. The main objective of this thesis is to exploit the current knowledge of the power systems in different fields and contribute with a novel approach for the concentrated solar power system capable to generate the required energy by different power systems. The main approach adopts the scientific method that includes the comparative analysis of related literature results to the specification of the research problem. Then the justification for a Reif’s system simulation for concentrated solar collector is provided. The work concludes with the main findings that prove the capacity of the new approach to provide a sound solution to the well- defined research problem. The added value of the approach is anchored around two pillars: • The development of the system is using immobile primary concentrators and a mobile secondary concentrator. This system is specialized for practical uses in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. • The key deliverables of the scientific methods represent a strong action towards the improvement of the sustainable energy through the vision of the Kingdom to replace the consumption of the oil with the clean and renewable resources to generate power in different places in the kingdom that have difficulties in accessing electricity and water.
