In this video, I give a simple explanation on how Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) works. This is the type of solar power that uses thousands of mirrors over hundreds of acres to reflect sunlight on a tower. This heats up molten salt to over 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The heated molten salt then creates steam from water, driving a steam turbine to produce electricity. CSP plants are used in primarily in the western United States. A big advantage of CSP is that power can produced at night time for at least several hours after the sun has set. ---- Here is my DIY Solar and Wind book that was published on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1508454310/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=1508454310&linkCode=as2&tag=erilaysyoucha-20&linkId=URNF3DPORKY4M5YR Barnes...

This is Part 2 of our Concentrated Solar Power experiment. This time, we used 731 mirrors instead of 20 larger mirrors, we demonstrated the power of this device by burning wood and melting plastic or to use as a solar oven.

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam. The concentrated heat is then used as a heat source for a conventional power plant. For additional information visit: www.murraypowerandgeneration.com
An animation of continuous power production from Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) used together with SaltX EnerStore. Solar thermal energy from CSP collectors is stored during daytime in EnerStore and used during night-time for power production. By this, continuous "day and night" power production, is made possible with a CSP plant where SaltX EnerStore is included. EnerStore facts: - Scaleable thermal energy storage - High energy density - Low level of losses - Cost effective - No maintenance heating - Environmentally friendly - Non-toxic
I use a large fresnel lens to test the effect of concentrated sunlight on a solar cell. To keep the solar cell cool I immerse it in mineral oil. I measure the voltage, current and the temperature. But I also test it without the cooling and sure enough, the solar cell is destroyed by the concentrated sunlight. The fresnel lens is one I got from a rear projection TV. See also my video all about fresnel lenses, "Fresnel lens - what is it, testing focal length, solar heat generated": http://youtu.be/11n0ZaZMj3A To watch my video about the fresnel lens combined with a mirror, "Fresnel lens and mirror solar cooker cast iron pan", see: http://youtu.be/hWDkCnpLRPA And for the video "What is Fire" watch: http://youtu.be/V3sV8t_HUdc In this one I use a small fresnel lens to concentrated sunlight...
Morocco has switched on what will be the world's largest concentrated solar power plant. The new site near the city of Ouarzazate -- famous as a filming location for Hollywood blockbusters like "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Gladiator" -- could produce enough energy to power over one million homes by 2018 and reduce carbon emissions by an estimated 760,000 tons per year, according to the Climate Investment Funds Mirrors focus the sun's light and heat up a liquid, which, when mixed with water, reaches around 400 degree Celsius. The steam produced from this process drives a turbine and generates electrical power. A cylinder full of salt is melted by the warmth from the mirrors during the day, and stays hot enough at night to provide up to three hours of power, according to World Bank, who par...
Beyond Zero Emissions intends to transform Australia from a 19th century fossil fuel based economy to a 21st century renewable powered clean tech economy with no carbon emissions. Sharon Shostak met up with some local residents/BZE volunteers who have taken the initiative to build a model to demonstrate a concentrating solar thermal plant, a technology beginning to proliferate in many countries but sadly remiss in Australia.

The Noor Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) complex is Morocco’s first utility-scale solar energy complex and serves as a critical step of the Moroccan Solar Energy Program. The three-plant Noor-Ouarzazate CSP complex seeks to contribute to the commercial viability of CSP and its potential throughout Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Operating with an installed capacity of 160 megawatts (MW), the first phase expects 240,000 tons of CO₂ emissions to be avoided per annum. By 2018, the three-phase project will be the largest of its kind in the world with over 500 MW of installed capacity, and will produce enough clean power to meet the needs of 1.1 million Moroccans.
From towers to dishes to linear mirrors to troughs, concentrating solar power (CSP) technologies reflect and collect solar heat to generate electricity. A single CSP plant can generate enough power for about 90,000 homes. This video explains what CSP is, how it works, and how systems like parabolic troughs produce renewable power.
