An important part of future global energy depends on the development of the solar industry. To date, we have noticed the shift from fossil fuels energy towards renewable energy. The past decade has shown significant progress in computer science, and CAD is increasingly used for design and development. Visualization of the data generated from the models in the CAD program plays an important role in the creation of state-of-the-art designs. An important limitation during the design phase is the visualization of three-dimensional geometry. This article attempts to illustrate the use of VR technologies in solar thermal power plant development. This article analyzes various strategies and methods for the visualization of CAD models in virtual reality. Android phone interfaces with a desktop computer, as well as head movement control strategies, are discussed. It is concluded that VR technologies can help with visualization, as well as in the development of the field of solar thermal power plants, having minimal design-related issues.

The solar thermal power generation system adopts a dual-axis timely tracking instrument device, which realizes that the sunlight and the central axis of the heliostat instrument device are kept parallel, and greatly improves the utilization efficiency of the light source and the power generation efficiency. At the same time, the study of instrumentation selection in the solar thermal power generation industry cannot be ignored, which can guarantee the normal operation and basic work quality of solar thermal power projects. Therefore, based on instrumentation devices in the solar thermal power generation industry, this article explores the drawbacks of instrumentation devices in the application, and puts forward several research ideas for the drawbacks. Finally, by taking the tower-type solar thermal power generation instrument device as an example.

A novel technique for waste heat recovery in solar thermal power generation is investigated through experimentation and  systematically presented. Power generation using Thermoelectric Generator (TEG) is a promising technique in waste heat recovery application. In this topology, TEG array is directly attached to the back of the solar Photovoltaic panel (model AP-AM15) to receive the transmitted heat at the back of the PV panel as waste heat. More so, a circulating water-heat sink is attached to the TEG cold side to improve the temperature gradient. Base on Seebeck effect, the TEG directly converts the temperature difference into electricity. The experimental result shows that efficiency between the range of 2.1% and 4.7% for the conventional cooling system while the output power approximately ranges between 0.05W and 0.47W, the circulating water-heat sink technique has efficiency ranging between 2.9% and 10.3% with output power between the range of 0.10W and 2.2W. The daily average increase in efficiency was found to be 263.76%. This shows that the daily average power is improved by a factor of 2.6376 with the water circulating water-heat sink technique. This is an indication of waste heat recovery from the solar thermal power generation.
