In this present work, a parabolic solar concentrator has been experimentally studied. The experimental devise consists of a dish of 2.2 m opening diameter. Its interior surface is covered with a reflecting layer, and equipped with a disc r eceiver in its focal position. The orientation of the parabola is ensured by two semi-automatic jacks. Experimental measurements of solar flux and temperature distribution on the receiver have been carried out. These experimental results describe correctly the awaited physical phenomena.
