Problem statement: The receiver of parabolic dual trough had been designed and built in order to increase efficiency of solar radiation accumulation by using iron-aluminum sheet as an intermediate in receiving heat and it is the study into how to benefit from solar radiation energy. This research proposed the principle of changing solar radiation to be heating energy by using aluminum sheet made into dual parabolic curve tilted with iron-aluminum sheet which was receiver of radiation reflection. Approach: This dual parabolic curve could be adjusted so that heat obtained from the solar radiation accumulation, which was the focus, could spread around iron-aluminum sheet. In testing of heating by solar energy, the unit would be tilted at 16
