Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) relies on thermodynamic processes to convert concentrated light into useful forms of energy. Accurate sun tracking enables higher concentration ratios and improved efficiency through higher temperature processes and lower losses. These tracking sensors utilize an improved approach to closed-loop feedback control and have demonstrated high accuracy and performance. Additionally, they have fast response characteristics needed for demanding point focus systems.
