A two‐stage stochastic integer programming model for a thermal power system expansion
In this paper the obtaining of an optimum policy in the capacity expansion planning of a particular thermal-electric power system is proposed. Therefore, a two-stage stochastic integer programming isExpand

Integrating a Fresnel solar boiler into an existing coal-fired power plant: a case study
Abstract: A Fresnel solar boiler is used to investigate the influence of a superheated-steam generating solar add-on on the overall performance of a 350 MW coal-fired power plant in two promisingExpand
Procedures for testing valves and pressure transducers with molten salt
Abstract Thermal energy storage has been identified as an effective method for improving the capacity of concentrating solar power plants. The most commonly-used storage media is molten salt (alsoExpand

Thermal gradient avoidance under stratified two-phase flow in DSG by capillar structures
The benefits of substitution of thermal oil with water in two phase flow for electricity production in parabolic trough solar fields have been pointed out in several papers, [1]. The need of coveringExpand
