Characterizing Heliostats at a Commercial Scale With Non-Intrusive Optics

Research output: NRELPresentation


The NIO methodologies objective is to precisely measure 3 sources of heliostat optical error quickly and automatically, without interfering with plant operations. This presentation will discuss in further depth what this means as well as review the solution.
