Parabolic trough power plants are currently the most commercially applied systems for CSP power generation. To improve their cost-effectiveness, one focus of industry and research is the development of processes with other heat transfer fluids than the currently used synthetic oil. One option is the utilization of water/steam in the solar field, the so-called direct steam generation (DSG). Several previous studies promoted the economic potential of DSG technology (Eck et al., 2008b; Price et al., 2002; Zarza, 2002). Analyses' results showed that live steam parameters of up to 500. °C and 120. bars are most promising and could lead to a reduction of the levelized electricity cost (LEC) of about 11% (Feldhoff et al., 2010). However, all of these studies only considered plants without thermal energy storage (TES). Therefore, a system analysis including integrated TES was performed by Flagsol GmbH and DLR together with Solar Millennium AG, Schott CSP GmbH and Senior Berghöfer GmbH, all Germany. Two types of plants are analyzed and compared in detail: a power plant with synthetic oil and a DSG power plant. The design of the synthetic oil plant is very similar to the Spanish Andasol plants (Solar Millennium, 2009) and includes a molten salt two-tank storage system. The DSG plant has main steam parameters of 500. °C and 112. bars and uses phase change material (PCM) for the latent and molten salt for the sensible part of the TES system. To enable comparability, both plants share the same gross electric turbine capacity of 100. MWel, the same TES capacity of 9. h of full load equivalent and the same solar multiple of the collector field of about two. This paper describes and compares both plants' design, performance and investment. Based on these results, the LEC are calculated and the DSG plant's potential is evaluated. One key finding is that with currently proposed DSG storage costs, the LEC of a DSG plant could be higher than those of a synthetic oil plant. When considering a plant without TES on the other hand, the DSG system could reduce the LEC. This underlines the large influence of TES and the still needed effort in the development of a commercial storage system for DSG. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

The main objective of this project is to significantly reduce costs of concentrated solar power, in order to pave the way for its deserved competitiveness on the power market. Specifically, the solar-to-electric conversion efficiency of the plant will be improved by increased receiver operating temperatures as well as an innovative power cycle configuration also providing advantages regarding plant operation. Additionally, improved control methodologies based on dynamic multi-aiming-point strategies for heliostats will further enhance efficiency. Besides the improvement of the plants efficiency and operation, also the construction and operational costs will be minimized via mass production of heliostats and smart heliostat calibration systems. The global objective of this project is to increase plant efficiencies and reduce levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) by developing all relevant components that allow implementing an innovative plant configuration. This plant configuration is based on a multi-tower decoupled advanced solar combined cycle approach that not only increases cycle efficiencies but also avoids frequent transients and inefficient partial loads, thus maximizing overall efficiency, reliability as well as dispatchability, all of which are important factors directly related to cost competitiveness on the power market. The core topic of the project, the innovative solar receiver, will be an open volumetric receiver allowing operating temperatures beyond 1200 C, providing the absorbed solar heat to the pressurized air circuit of the Brayton cycle via a network of fixed bed regenerative heat exchangers working in alternating modes (non-pressurized heating period, pressurized cooling period).

The direct steam generation (DSG) in parabolic trough collectors is a promising option to improve the mature parabolic trough solar thermal power plant technology of the solar energy generating systems (SEGS) in California. According to previous studies [Langenkamp, 1998, "Revised LEC Projections and Discussion of Different DSG Benefits," Technical Report No. DISS-SC-QA-02, Almeria, Spain; Price, 2002, "Advances in Parabolic Trough Solar Power Technology," ASME J. Sol. Energy Eng., 124(2), pp. 109-125; Zarza, E., 2002, "DISS Phase II Final Report," Technical Report EU Contract No. JOR3-CT98-0277, Almeria, Spain], the cost reduction in the DSG process compared with the SEGS technology is expected to be 8-25%. All these studies were more or less preliminary since they lacked detailed information on the design of collector fields, absorber tubes required for steam temperatures higher than 400°C, and power blocks adapted to the specific needs of the direct steam generation. Power blocks and collector fields were designed for four different capacities (5 MWel, 10 MWel, 50 MW el, and 100 MWel) and different live steam parameters. The live steam temperature was varied between saturation temperature and 500°C and live steam pressures of 40 bars, 64 bars, and 100 bars were investigated. To assess the different cases, detailed yield analyses of the overall system were performed using hourly data for the direct normal irradiation and the ambient temperature for typical years. Based on these results, the levelized costs of electricity were determined for all cases and compared with a reference system using synthetic oil as heat transfer fluid. This paper focuses on two main project findings. First, the 50 MWel DSG system parameter comparisons are presented. Second, the detailed comparison between a DSG and a SEGS-like 100 MWel system is given. The main result of the investigation is that the benefit of the DSG process depends on the project site and can reach an 11% reduction in the levelized electricity cost. © 2010 American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

Flagsol GmbH | Date: 2010-02-26

A parabolic trough collector includes a parabolic mirror support structure with a parabolic mirror surface applied thereto, and an absorber support structure supporting an absorber tube. The parabolic mirror support structure and the absorber support structure are mechanically fastened in a fixed position relative to one another on a torsion tube that is arranged below the parabolic mirror surface, and mounted together with the parabolic mirror surface in a fashion capable of rotation about a parabolic trough collector longitudinal rotation axis. The torsion tube is arranged such that the parabolic trough collector longitudinal rotation axis coincides with the central longitudinal axis of the torsion tube.


In an expansion system (11) of the heat transfer medium circuit (1) of a solar thermal power plant, comprising a plurality of expansion tanks (12a, 12b, 12c) and/or flooding tanks which are arranged in the heat transfer medium circuit (1), a solution is to be created which enables a technically simplified and constructionally less costly compensating or expansion system to be created. This is achieved by the expansion system (11) comprising a plurality of expansion tanks (12a, 12b, 12c) which are arranged at basically the same height level and are in fluid-conducting communication.
