Abstract

This paper, presents the development of a solar parabolic dish collector prototype to rural areas with high solar resource availability in Colombia, which  have not access to electricity service or a budget to purchase  a stove (electric or gas). 

The solar collector prototype, propose  a solution to solve this kind of  issues and use sunlight to work it , through a parabolic dish of polished stainless steel, the solar  radiation are concentrated in a specific  area called  focus, where thermal energy is generated and  would be used to cooking or to filling a necessity  without  high investment  and helping the environment.

To finish, it describes the decisive stages of the prototype implementation, which provides the solar resource analyzed in Colombia, the theoretical analysis, the structural design, the study and manufacturing materials..
