Abstract

Solar receivers and particularly to solar receivers having one or more cavities and optionally having absorptivity/reflectivity patterns on surfaces and methods of reflective material application.

Independent Claims | See all claims (20)

  1. 1. A solar receiver comprising: a receiver housing and comprising a cavity and an incident solar flux receiver comprising a first receiver panel, the first receiver panel comprising a plurality of boiler tubes.
  2. 13. A method of dispersing incident solar flux within a cavity of a solar receiver comprising: determining a region of a cavity surface of the solar receiver exceeding a threshold of absorbed flux; and applying a reflective material proximate to the determined region.
  3. 15. A method of dispersing incident solar flux within a cavity of a solar receiver comprising: determining a region of a surface of a cavity wall of the solar receiver exceeding a threshold of absorbed flux; and applying a reflective material proximate to a portion of the cavity wall surface based on the determined region exceeding the threshold.
