We employ three different data transfer schemes in association with the time domain airloads: method 1 uses random data selection matched at every azimuth angle of 5 deg for both CFD and CSD analyses; method 2 adopts a low pass filter containing up to 10/rev (per revolution) for both CFD and CSD data; and method 3 is a mixture of the two methods.
The program tracking process of a dish concentrator system is as follows: calculate the position information of the sun (the elevation angle and azimuth angle of the sun) by astronomical algorithm [13]; according to the sun position information, the output rotation angle of an azimuth motor and elevation motor in the EATD is controlled and then the elevation tracking axis [n.sub.1] and azimuth tracking axis [n.sub.2] in the EATD can rotate a corresponding angle (Figure 2(b)), which will change the azimuth and elevation angle of the dish concentrator for realizing the focal axis aiming at the sun's center.
