How Concentrated Solar Thermal Power Plant Works?

Image
The Concentrated solar thermal Power plant produces electricity from the heat from sun's rays. It's an effective source of large-scale energy production.
Firstly a solar farm is made up of heliostats. These are computer controlled mirrors which follow the movement of the sun in order to best reflect its rays towards a central point throughout the day. A solar farm can include from several hundred to several thousand heliostats which communicate with each other over wifi in order to optimize their yield.
I have made a non-working model of a concentrated solar thermal power tower plant to expain it's working in a better way. We have uploaded the making video in youtube, and have embedded the video in this page. Don't forget to comment.

The mirror pieces represents heliostats.
These heliostats reflect and concentrate sunlight onto a large heat exchanger called receiver that sits on top of a tower which located in the center of the solar farm. …
