The major energy losses:
The main losses are during the reflection from the reflecting part and there is also convective losses from the receiver to the surrounding environment.
High reflecting materials are generally used for reducing convection. Twisted tapes are used to transfer heat from the absorber to the working fluid.
East-West, North-South or polar. are the three directions in which a cylindrical parabolic trough may be oriented. The first two arrangements, although simple to assemble, have higher losses due to incidence angle cosine losses. The polar configuration gives the best performance. It intercepts more solar radiation per unit area in comparison to other models.
