Solar concentrator technology has been researches in different fields in order to enhancement efficiency and energy storage of these systems. Some changes in fluid and numerous components of the collectors has been proposed in recent years. In this context, this paper present results associates to the modeling and thermal analysis of a concentrating system based on parabolic through collector with receiver piper, designed with fractal geometry with the aim of improve system heat transfer. Founded on thermal modeling of heat transfer phenomena as radiation, convection and conduction, physical and mathematical relations between fractal geometrical parameters and transfer heat coefficient were established to find the influence of a chaotic structure on thermal behavior. Proposed designs were simulated through Solid works ® Flow Simulation tool. Was possible obtain maximum temperatures in air with fractal and cylindrical pipes of de 89°C, 86°C y 81°C respectively. The gap between fractal geometry results and cylindrical geometry is 10°C around.
