The largest solar furnace in the world Odeyllo light, architecture, solar oven, sun
Solar furnace was built in 1969 by the National Research Center. The system consists of 63 fixed mirrors mounted on the grounds of the surrounding hills, which reflect the sun’s rays on a large concave mirror. Due to this, the square about the size of the pan concentrates a huge amount of sunlight, raising its temperature to 3500 degrees Celsius. Needless parabolic mirror consists of 10,000 individual mirrors and covers an area of nearly 2000 square meters.
Solar oven is used by the National Research Centre for the study of heat transfer fluid systems, power converters and the behavior of materials at high temperatures. These fields are of particular interest to the aerospace industry.
