Evacuated non-tubular solar thermal collectors were proposed for solar thermal concentrated systems, which consists of a flat glass window as an aperture accepting solar radiation. Simulation with ANSYS showed that a reasonably wide design region is available for the solar radiation aperture. The collectors enhance solar thermal efficiency and relax the requirements on absorber surfaces for high temperature applications.
