Abstract This paper presents a steady-state model coupling three-dimensional, spectral radiation heat-transfer to a quasi-one-dimensional particle flow model for assessing performance of a directly-irradiated, falling-particle solar receiver with a closed cavity for thermochemical reduction of ceria. A semi-empirical gas-phase flow entrainment model captures the heat and mass exchange between the surrounding gas and the reducing ceria particles. With bulk and surface thermochemistry for the… CONTINUE READING
