Competitive SolAr Power Towers

 Marcelino Sanchez PhD, Fritz Zaversky PhD
Description: Increase plant efficiencies and reduce levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) by proposing an innovative plant concept. Downsized heliostat for mass production+smart calibration system. Validating the most critical components in the relevant environments. Solar-driven hot air turbine prototype is going to be installed at the PSA. An open volumetric solar receiver charges a regenerator. The regenerator is pressurized and discharged, driving the turbine.
