Design of a System using CPC Collectors to Collect Solar Energy and to Produce Industrial Process Steam

Design of a System using CPC Collectors to Collect Solar Energy and to Produce Industrial Process Steam

Date: August 1979
Creator: Argonne National Laboratory. Solar Energy Group.
Description: A system has been designed to use CPC collectors to collect solar energy and to generate steam for industrial process heat purposes. The system is divided into two loops with the collectors in the collector loop to operate a pre-heater and the collectors in the boiler loop to heat water to elevated pressures and temperatures. A flash boiler is used to throttle the heated water to steam. Two types of CPC collectors are chosen. In the collector loop the CPC collectors are fitted with concentric tube receivers. In the boiler loop the collectors employ heat pipes to transmit heat. This design is able to alleviate the scaling and plumbing problems. A fragile receiver tube can also be employed without rupture difficulties. The thermal processes in the collectors were analyzed using a computer modeling. The results were also used to develop a thermodynamic analysis of the total system. Calculations show that the design is technically feasible. The CPC collector is shown to have an efficiency that is very weakly dependent on its operating temperatures, which makes the collector particularly attractive in high temperature applications.

Design of a Tunable High-Q Superconducting Notch Filter

Design of a Tunable High-Q Superconducting Notch Filter

Date: October 1978
Creator: Falco, Charles M.; Kampwirth, R. T.; Pang, C. S. & Schuller, Ivan K.
Description: The design of a tunable high-Q superconducting notch filter is presented. The filter is designed to be manufactured from high Tc superconductors (Nb3S, Nb3Ge) made by high-rate magnetron sputtering on sapphire substrates. The geometry of the various elements, holder materials for the cryostat, studies relating to the preparation of suitable high Tc materials, and the photo-etching procedures for the filter elements are discussed.

Development and Demonstration of Compound Parabolic Concentrators for Solar Thermal Power Generation and Heating and Cooling Applications, Progress Report: July-December 1975

Development and Demonstration of Compound Parabolic Concentrators for Solar Thermal Power Generation and Heating and Cooling Applications, Progress Report: July-December 1975

Date: 1977
Creator: Allen, John W.; Levitz, Norman M.; Rabl, Ari; Reed, Kent A.; Schertz, William W.; Thodos, George et al.
Description: Progress report describing the development of Compound Parabolic Concentrators (CPC). A tenfold concentrator with a cavity receiver was constructed and tested. The optical efficiency was very good (65 percent), but the thermal performance was degraded by heat losses of the cavity receiver. A summary of the results of subcontracts described in the previous progress report are presented, and the influence of these results on ANL programs is noted.

Development of a MK-II Loop to Simulate Reactor Hydraulic Conditions

Development of a MK-II Loop to Simulate Reactor Hydraulic Conditions

Date: January 1979
Creator: Page, R. J. & Robinson, L. E.
Description: The Mk-IIC Integral Loop was modified to provide an in-pile experimental apparatus that would simulate the subassembly coolant flow rate and inlet pressure head of the Fast Test Reactor (FTR). There were two main design changes. First, the safety dump tanks were removed from the Mk-IIC loop and replaced by a second annular linear induction pump (ALIP). Second, a flow restricting orifice was sized so that the hydraulic requirements of prototypical test-section coolant velocity and pressure head would be achieved. The resulting redesigned loop was used for the in-pile TREAT transient over-power Test H6, which investigated fuel sweep-out and coolability following fuel-pin failure under hydraulic conditions typical of the FTR. The procedure reported here will help in the design of advanced TREAT vehicles such as the Mk-III loop.
