Abstract : A constant speed drive mechanism has been incorporated into the collector concentrator and operates as planned. A ten-couple module has been extensively tested and the results indicate the feasibility model can produce 18.3 w. The waste heat radiator test rig is being assembled. Problem areas are still being encountered in the thermal energy storage system. A preliminary system design has been completed. A test specification is included. (Author)
