Solar energy is available in abundant quantity which can be utilized for thermal and power generation applications. The maximum solar energy extraction for application is challenging. This review focuses on the performance enhancement of parabolic trough collector. Heat transfer through absorber tube, various nanofluids with concentration is stated. Thermal efficiency increases due to the use of parabolic collector with booster reflector and glass cover over the system performance. The complex 3D analysis (ANSYS) gives accurate distribution of heat flux over the absorber tube.
Key words: Parabolic trough collector / secondary booster reflector
