Abstract: 
Optimization of geometrical parameters of receiver for Brayton cycle Space Solar power system is considered. A thermal energy storage module with a phase-change material combines with a receiver of solar energy. Geometrical performance coefficient is considered as main value. Performance coefficient of device concentration and reception, radius of reflector and radius of aperture are determined in this paper too, if the parameters of cycle and the value of useful electric power is known.
