The sun simulator test bench ElliRec has been developed to measure the optical quality of receivers. The data of the receiver to be tested is measured in ElliRec and compared with a reference receiver. Solar power stations using trough technolgy use thousands of receivers. Even small deviations of the optical quality of the installed receiver model will have a huge negative effect on the total output of the solar power station.
