Regarding solar trough collector, a paper is presented for elliptical cavity tube receivers in a parabolic trough solar collector. The authors have designed and optimized the cavity receivers and concluded that the focal distance has a negative relation with the cavity open length, whereas the concentration ratio has a positive relation with the cavity open length.
