Abstract

This papers deals with the Modelica /Dymola modeling of linear concentrating solar power in a parabolic-trough experimental loop using direct steam generation. An extensive description of the parabolic collector and the absorber tube models is proposed. First results of the simulation of a clear sky day, with the aim of validating the models, are proposed. Experimental data from the CIEMAT-PSA DISS loop in Almeria, Spain, is used.
