A theoretical study on solar thermionic (thermo electronic) power conversion with a parabolic concentrator
In this paper Part I we consider the detailed energy dynamics of a thermionic converter heated by solar energy concentrated by a parabolic mirror and compute the total output power for different solar insolation, height of emitter, reflectivity of parabolic mirror, assuming no space charge effect initially. Our theoretical investigation gives for the first time the dependence of the output...
