Paper Abstract

Blind approach in constructing high heat solar collectors with the one-stage light flux concentration is presented. Shown arc diverse multiclement optical configurations that can be built on the basis of a blind-type concept. Their two main versions using the set of concave parabolic reflecting elements arc described. A preliminary estimation of thc flux concentration level for a circle-blind collector shows it reaching up to half of the thennodyna.mic limit. Key words: solar collectors, high-temperature concentrators, blind reflectois.
