High Temperature concentrated solar thermal power plant with particle receiver and direct thermal storage
ABOUT next - CSP
Next-CSP is a consortium of 10 partners gathered to fulfil one objective: improving the reliability and performance of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plants through the development and integration of a new technology based on the use of high temperature (800°C) particles as heat transfer fluid and storage medium. To achieve this objective, the project will demonstrate the technology in a relevant environment (TRL5) and at a significant size (4 MWth). The complete system will be tested at “Thémis” experimental solar tower facility (France).
Scientific publications: Flexible electricity dispatch for CSP plant using un-fired closed air Brayton cycle with particles based thermal energy storage system
This last paper of the Next-CSP project presents a novel power block concept for flexible electricity dispatch in a Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) plant. The power block is based on intercooled-unfired regenerative closed air Brayton cycle that is connected to a...Read more
