Description

The RE16 Advanced Thermal Energy system provides students with a self-contained modular system, covering the different technologies for solar thermal energy transformation on a laboratory scale. 

Included in the system are various solar collector systems (including Parabolic reflector and Absorber tube) which can be operated with or without the supplied pump. 

Additionally supplied are CSP-technology (Concentrated Solar Power) and a Peltier element for the direct transformation into electric energy.

Experimentation includes basics of thermodynamics, heat exchange, absorption of heat radiation and the convective flow of heat.
