The principal features of a computer simulation used as a design tool for solar thermal receivers for paraboloidal dish collectors are described. Performance predictions derived from this model are outlined and compared with experiments on two receiver designs testing the overall thermal performance and the flux distribution. It is shown that predicted performance is in good agreement and that the model is suitable for design purposes.
