Centre sets up solar thermal components testing facility in Hyderabad

The central government has set up a concentrated solar thermal (CST) based test rig facility at Hyderabad.

The facility will help the solar industry test capability and performance of solar thermal components like solar receiver tubes, heat transfer fluids, and concentrating mirrors. The testing facility will validate indigenous components by assessing their performance at varying operating parameters such as flow rates of heat transfer fluids, operating temperature and pressure, among others and different direct normal irradiance conditions. The facility has been set up by the International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI).
