Title:
SUNLIGHT COLLECTION UNIT AND SUNLIGHT COLLECTION DEVICE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2014/054191
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
In order to provide a technology whereby the cross-sectional shape of the reflecting surface of a mirror main body (10) which is a flat plate can be changed by applying force to both ends of the mirror main body (10), thereby enabling incident sunlight from any direction to be collected in a light-collecting pipe, an equipment-center axis (60) is rotationally driven, thereby controlling the angle of first and second side parts (P1, P2) of the mirror main body (10), and the distance between these side parts (P1, P2), and the inclination of the mirror main body (10). Thus, the cross-sectional shape of the reflecting surface of the mirror main body (10) can be changed so as to be bilaterally symmetrical or bilaterally asymmetrical. Consequently, the sunlight reflected by the reflecting surface of the mirror main body (10) can be collected effectively at a prescribed portion of the light-collecting pipe, regardless of changes in the incidence angle of the sunlight with respect to the mirror main body (10).
