Harnessing the Sun (2011)
This presentation comes from Christopher Polashenski, PhD of the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth. It is an introduction to solar energy that focuses on solar thermal, concentrated solar power and photovoltaics.
The presentation discusses how solar thermal energy arises from the sun heating heat media which then is transferred into space heating or domestic hot water. Graphs and diagrams of key solar thermal technologies are presented. The section on concentrating solar power technology focuses on the energy output of CSP systems, and how they are being used in industrial settings.
