ABSTRACT:
This document is volume 3 of 7 of the Preliminary Design Report on the Phase 1 Solar Pilot Plant by Honeywell. Volume 3 describes the Collector Subsystem. The Honeywell collector subsystem features a low profile, multifaceted heliostat designed to provide high reflectivity and accurate

angular and spatial positioning of the redirected solar energy under all conditions of wind load and mirror attitude within the design operational envelope. The heliostats are arranged in a circular field around a cavity receiver on a tower halfway south of the field center. A calibration array mounted on the receiver tower provides capability to measure individual heliostat beam location and energy periodically. This information and weather data from the collector file are transmitted to a computerized control subsystem that addresses the individual heliostat to correct pointing errors and determine when the mirrors need cleaning. This volume contains a detailed subsystem design description, a presentation of the design process, and the results of the SRE heliostat test program.
