Abstract :
[en] Small-capacity (<200 kWel) concentrated solar power plants has been recognized as a promising technology for micro power applications. In particular, parabolic trough collectors have been identified as the most promising focusing technology. In this context, physics-based dynamic model of parabolic trough constitutes a significant tool for the further development of the technology, allowing to evaluate and optimize response times during transients, or to implement and test innovative control strategies. In this contribution, the dynamic model of a parabolic trough line based on the ThermoCycle Modelica library is validated against steady-state and transient experimental results from the parabolic trough test loop available at the Plataforma Solar de Almería, Spain. The simulation results are in good agreement with the measurements, both in steady-state and in transient conditions. The validated model is readily usable to investigate demanding dynamics-based problems for low capacity solar power systems.
