Identification
Number of Branch
Fluid mass flow at inlet in one branch
Enthalpy at inlet
Enthalpy at outlet
Effective heat input in one brach
Total Effective heat

Solar Heat Input (Qsolar) QSOLAR = DNI * ANET * FOPT_0 * KIA * FOCUS * ETASHAD * ETAENDL * ETASPILL

Direct normal irradiance


Collector length
Gross aperture width
Gross collector area
Active reflective area
Optical active portion of aperture

Net aperture area


Peak optical efficiency
Incident angle correction longitudinal
Incident angle (Trough+Fresnel)

Incident angle correction


Focus state of the collector
Tuning factor shading model (0=no shading, 1=based on model
Row spacing (absolute)
Track / Transversal angle
Factor to include shading losses
Focal length / height of absorber above mirrors
Tuning factor optical end loss
Collector spacing (serial)
Tuning factor optical end gain
depends on FELOSS
Factor to correct end loss effect from model
Factor to include optical losses due to wind impact
factor to correct for actual mirror cleanliness
