Paper Abstract

In real world applications the nonimaging optics has the advantage of high error tolerance compared to conventional imaging optics. In this paper we present the result of a solar collector constructed with the nonimaging optics principles and the effect of off-positioning its absorbers on its optical efficiency. Thermal analysis of such effects are also presented.
