Solar One and CESA-I are two experimental plants that were built to evaluate the feasibility of solar thermal central receiver technology for electric power production. Solar One, a 10 MW/sub e/ plant, is located near Barstow, California, USA, and CESA-I, a 1.2 MW/sub e/ plant, is located near Almeria, Spain. This report compares the performance of the receiver and thermal storage systems for the two plants. 42 refs., 75 figs., 24 tabs.
