Resum
The use of parabolic trough solar technology in solar power plants has been increased in recent years. Such devices are located in open terrain and can be the subject of strong winds. As a result, the stability of these devices to track accurately the sun and the convection heat transfer from the receiver tube could be affected. In this paper, a detailed numerical aerodynamic and heat transfer model based on Large Eddy Simulations (LES) modelling for these equipments is presented. First, the mod...
