(Eds.) Free Preview. Central Tower CSP Technology Unlike linear concentrating systems (troughs), which reflect light onto a focal line, the central receiver systems send concentrated light onto a remote central receiver.

A typical example of such a system is a solar power tower system, which consists of multiple tracking mirrors (heliostats) positioned in the field.

The solar ther­ mal way of solving the problem was attractive because the main task was simply to replace the fossil fuel by a "solar fuel" in an other­ wise conventional thermal power plant -that was at least what many thought at that time.

Thus more than half a dozen of. Solar One is the first large-scale application of the central receiver concept.

It is located just outside Barstow, California in the Mojave Desert. The solar site, shown in Figureis adjacent to a Southern California Edison fossil fuel power plant and produces electricity for their central power grid.
