The sun provides the earth with huge amounts of energy that can be exploited in various forms. Its exploitation can be done by using a parabolic through solar concentrator integrated with thermal storage tank, that we already made, and it is our main study. This study obviously requires special attention to the effect of the parameters of the fluids, in addition to thermal performances of this system. To do this, we studied the thermal behavior of this concentrator, and by choosing the summer period because of its stable illumination (clear sky). Before starting the test, it is necessary to check the flow circuit and the storage tank which completely filled with fluid, started the measures on the morning, the concentrator directed towards the sun until the sunset, we recorded the variation of different temperatures such as Tin, Tout, Tsur, Tfluid and Tamb.
We have compared the evaluation of temperatures between water and thermal oil in order to determine the best thermal behavior and the importance of the specific heat of each fluid. The obtained results of this paper show that by using water inside the receiver, we obtained better performance than by using oil. It can be observed that the oil temperature increasing rapidly compared to water, however, water temperature takes long time to cool down compared to the first fluid which will help in the storage of heat.
