Abstract: A 252m target-aligned research heliostat with closed-loop control, with a theoretical concentration of 80 suns, has been built at CSIR in South Africa. The heliostat has four degrees of freedom: Azimuth, Elevation, Rotation and Pitch. A control system making use of a solar tracker has been developed and tested on a 1.252m target-aligned miniheliostat. A tracking accuracy of 3.3 milliradians was obtained. A good focal spot has been obtained with the 252m target-aligned research heliostat.
