- ... Parabolic trough solar collectors are currently one of the most mature and prominent solar technology for the production of electricity. These systems are usually located in an open terrain where strong winds may be found, and could affect their stability and optical performance, as well as the heat exchange between the solar receiver and the ambient air. In this context, a wind flow analysis arou ...
