  6. Introduction • Solar thermal power plant generates electricity from energy of the sun. • Field consists of a tower and heliostats. • A receiver located on top of the tower. • iPhone/iPod Touch Application. • Marketing Purpose. Visualization iPhone Fall 2009 6

  7. Requirement Specification • Hardware • iPhone/iPOD Touch • Apple Macintosh • Software • iPhone SDK • Unity Indie 3D Game Engine Visualization iPhone Fall 2009 7

  8. Project Requirement • User Input screen • Date, time, heliostat measurement, tower measurement, field layout, tower placement • Grid Layout Screen • 2D grid • Computation of Sun position, heliostat position and blocking/shading • Visualization Screen • Sun View, tower View and heliostat View Visualization iPhone Fall 2009 8

  9. Heliostat The heliostat is composed of several mirror modules rather than having single large mirror. Visualization iPhone Fall 2009 9

  10. Heliostat position Field of heliostat. Grid of n rows and m columns. Tower Location. Center of the cell. Representative heliostat. Visualization iPhone Fall 2009 10

  11. Shading • Shading occurs at low sun angles when heliostat casts its shadow on a heliostat located behind it. Visualization iPhone Fall 2009 11

  12. Blocking • Blocking can be observed in a heliostat field by noting reflected light on the backs of heliostats. Visualization iPhone Fall 2009 12

  13. Sun Calculation Position of the sun. Accuracy of 0.01 degrees (36 arc seconds) in celestial longitude 2D grid. Using date, time, north latitude, east longitude and elevation we calculated the vectors Visualization iPhone Fall 2009 13

  14. Demonstration Visualization iPhone Fall 2009 14

  15. Lesson Learned • Professional Approach. • Research Work. • New dimension and view. • Team Work. • Time management. Visualization iPhone Fall 2009 15

  16. Future Work • Render multiple cells simultaneously. • Complete day visualization. Visualization iPhone Fall 2009

  17. Conclusion • Visualization of Solar Thermal Power Plant is successfully deployed on iPhone/iPod-touch. • The application renders cell containing heliostats. • User can view the cell using three different views. • User-Friendly software. Visualization iPhone Fall 2009 17
