What I did <ul><li>Solar Concentrator Project </li></ul><ul><ul><li>My mentor, Christopher Meagher, had me working on various parts of a solar concentrator project. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Framework </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Water Flow </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Parabolic Concentrator </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Solar tracker/Weatherdome </li></ul></ul></ul>7/31/20099
  3. 3. Framework <ul><li>Original </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The original design was drawn on a white board and had several changes made to </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Digital </li></ul><ul><ul><li>After drawing up the design on the white board I transferred it to QCAD and Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD) program. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Materials </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To build the frame I used steel rods and several Nuts and Bolts </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Putting it together </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To help me put it together I worked with a man who worked in the machine shop, he helped me drill holes in the rods among various other things. </li></ul></ul>7/31/20099 Building Designing
  4. 4. CAD design of 1 st Gen. Framework 7/31/20099
  5. 5. CAD design of 2 nd Gen. Framework 7/31/20099
  6. 6. Water Flow Testing <ul><li>Testing to see if the radiator slowed down the rate of water flow.. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>I helped design and build a rig to test how fast the water flowed through the radiator from different pressures/heights. </li></ul></ul>7/31/20099
  7. 7. Parabolic Concentrator <ul><li>The Solar panels needed testing under sunlight to show their efficiency and durability </li></ul><ul><ul><li>I helped to build a parabolic reflector and support to test how well the solar cells would do under accelerated testing. </li></ul></ul>7/31/20099
  8. 8. Solar tracker + Weather dome <ul><li>Solar trackers are needed to track the sun. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The solar tracker allows the concentrator unit to get maximum efficiency by pointing it at the sun </li></ul></ul><ul><li>A weather dome is needed to make the solar tracker more rugged. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The weather dome that I created was a mayonnaise jar and was fairly simple </li></ul></ul>7/31/20099
