Concentrating Solar Thermal Systems for Generating Electricity (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on December 7, 2011

This is a presentation from the Mexican Non-Conventional Energy Management Electric Power Research Institute aimed at describing the perspectives of using concentrating solar power (CSP) technologies, and the implications stemming from this choice. It was made during the Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE) Electricity Workshop held in Paraguay in May 2010.

Software and Codes for Analysis of Concentrating Solar Power Technologies (2008)

Submitted by Hans Craen on February 1, 2010

This 2008 document provides an overview of the various software packages and codes that have been used to support Sandia National Laboratories’ CSP research activities. The report also looks into software programmes which have been developed by other institutions or companies.

The report looks into three CSP technologies i.e. power tower systems, linear concentrator systems and dish/engine systems. For each of the technologies, an assessment of the software is made based on a hierarchy for modeling complex systems.
