Heat loss is an important factor in the performance of the solar receiver for concentrated solar systems (CSP). This study presents a proposed model for a new design for the receiver using an evacuated tube that has been performed to reduce convection loss and radiative heat losses with a zigzag distribution to minimize spillage losses. In this study, simulation results showed that the energy input increases with increased solar irradiation; the increase ranges from 3429 to 5584 W and 1879 to 3875 W at 9 AM and 13 PM for preheater and superheater respectively. The thermal efficiency of the receiver was around 72%.
