A heliostat (from helios, the Greek word for sun, and stat, as in stationary) is a device that includes a mirror, usually a plane mirror, which turns so as to keep reflecting sunlight toward a predetermined target, compensating for the sun's apparent motions in the target may be a physical object, distant from the heliostat, or a direction in space.

Heliostats of m2) in and in dollars of that year, the report estimates that the cost would be at about $/m2 (equivalent to $/m2 of ) also believes that maintaining this rate of production of million m2 per year, the effects of learning and volume manufacturing that lead to achieving the target of $/m2 ( $/m2 of.

Using cost data from previously published DOE reports, this method showed that the cost-optimal heliostat was much smaller than many in the field had been developing. For the chosen set of inputs, it was shown that a heliostat size of around 10m 2 was much.

A second conclusion is that cost reduction begins at relatively low production volumes and that many production benefits can be obtained at production rates of 5, to 15, units/year.

A third conclusion is that the SAMICS model and the SAMIS III program can be useful tools in heliostat manufacturing, costing, and economic studies. @article{osti_, title = {Heliostat production evaluation and cost analysis}, author = {Britt, J.

With modern control capabilities and low cost electronics, a field of smaller (1m2 to 10m2 per heliostat) is likely to have a lower overall system cost.2 Cost breakdown for the ATS heliostat production and deployment3 We also assumed that on a long-term.

Given that conventional heliostat mirrors may number in the hundreds of thousands for a large solar plant, this could be the biggest opportunity to substantially slash the cost of Concentrated Solar Power, especially for Concentrated Solar Heat (CSH), for which the mirror field is most of the plan, so that would make CSH ultra-low-cost.

The cost of maintenance, part replacements, and end-of-life salvage values were also taken into account. Figure 1 presents the cost data for each individual year, while Figure 2 presents the total cost of both the heliostat and fossil fuels for the total 25 years.

Since they constitute ∼50% to the capital cost of the plant it is important to reduce the cost of heliostats to as low as possible to improve the economic viability of power towers. In this study we evaluate current heliostat technology and estimate a price of $/m 2 given year materials and labor by: Heliostat Cost Reduction for Power Tower Plants installed costs were sensitive to factors such as aluminum alloy cost and production volume.

strong and could be the preferred low-cost approach for mega heliostats. Engineering scaling laws indicate the cost of this heliostat could be $21/m2 less than the ATS heliostat. However, the optical quality of the mega heliostat will be worse and the optical.

A heliostat is a mirror based system which is used to continuously reflect sunlight onto a central receiver. The collected solar energy is then converted into electrical power. Currently, costs associated with the construction and maintenance of heliostats have proven prohibitive with respect to.

This process tends to be most cost-effective for low-volume applications, where the production run is insufficient to absorb the cost of automated equipment. “Low volume” will depend upon the application, but for production runs greater than a few hundred, the long layup times and consequently high labor costs mean that manual layup tends.ADVERTISEMENTS: Volume-Based Overhead Rate: Definition, Features and Limitations!

Concept: Traditional product costing system is also referred to as functional-based cost accounting system or volume-based costing system. Traditional (or conventional) product costing system determines product cost by way of allocating, in the first stage, direct costs to the products and then subsequently.

The cost level per square meter of the heliostat field is rather high. Sun2point is questioning the market development, which is trying to get the cost level down by aiming at large heliostats. Sun2Point aims at mass manufacturing small heliostats to achieve low : P.
