The Numerical Investigation on Optical Efficiency and Heat Flux Distribution of Conical Cavity Receiver
Optical efficiency analysis of conical cavity receiver is introduced in this receiver. Monte-Carlo ray tracing codes was developed to analyze the optical efficiency and heat flux distribution of conical cavity receiver with aperture radius variation. Besides, the impact of slope error variation on the optical efficiency and heat flux distribution are also investigated. The numerical results show that inverted conical cavity receiver with optimized aperture radius has the highest optical efficiency.
