This part of IEC 62862 specifies the requirements and the test methods for the characterization of a large-size parabolic-trough collector.
This document covers the determination of optical and thermal performance of parabolictrough collectors, and the tracking accuracy of the collector one-axis tracking system. This test method is for outdoor testing only.
This document applies to parabolic-trough collectors equipped with the manufacturer-supplie
The test method in this document does not apply to any collector under operating conditions where phase-change of the fluid occurs.
This document applies to the whole collector.
