Girls' Day on March 27, 2014

14/02/2014
 

The CAMMP school student lab is participating in Girls' Day 2014 for the Department of Mathematics. Questions about solar thermal power plants are at the focus. In sunny areas mirros reflect the sun's rays onto a pipe, through which water is directed. The water is heated into steam, which powers a turbine creating electricity. Since the sun's position changes over the course of a day, the mirrors' tilt angles must constantly be adjusted throughout the day. How can the distance between the mirrors, their size, the height of the water pipe, and other parameters be selected, in a way that as much energy as possible is created?
