It is necessary to increase the efficiency of existing solar power plants both through the study of energy processes and the creation of new schematic diagrams of solar systems by reducing the cost of their design, principle of operation and operation. Authors have developed the LUCH solar plant in solving these problems. The article presents the device of the installation, a mathematical description of the shape of the solar concentrator, calculations of the parameters of the cones and their layout diagram. When developing the concentrator, the condition was accepted — the adopted form of the paraboloid as the basis of the concentrator needs to be changed so as to simplify the design and manufacturing process. The design change was made by splitting the paraboloid of revolution into separate cones. The calculated geometrical parameters of the LUCH solar concentrator are compared with the obtained parameters for an ideal paraboloid concentrator.
Key words: solar power plants / solar radiation concentrators / solar radiation flux intensity / paraboloid / mathematical description / splitting of a paraboloid of rotation
