Abstract

The development of the Fresnel artisanal system or Fresnel linear collector aims to take advantage of solar radiation and local materials, to generate a low-cost alternative for the production of hot water or steam, with scope for integration to desalination systems that require feed water in a range of 60 ℃ to 95 ℃. For the prototype development, the solar radiation in the town Giron, Santander, Colombia was used, later mathematical models were identified to carry out the dimensioning, followed by the selection of local materials based on availability and technical specifications, in order to carry out the assembly and field tests. The system was designed to perform manual solar monitoring counting with three auxiliary systems: solar preheater, pumping system and data acquisition system for temperature, level and flow variables.
