The demand for energy and specifically for electricity has been growing continuously. Today, the main source of energy for electricity production is based in fossil fuels. Environmental problems and mostly the growth of prize of fossil fuels has driven the electricity producers to reassess ways of power generation. One of the objectives of this study is to combine two solar thermal technologies to increase the amount of energy coming from the sun to the cycle and thus increase the solar factor to the total power output. By using central receiver technology, the gas turbine can reduce notably its fuel consumption. The possibility of implementing the gas turbine leads to the installation of a combined cycle to extract as much energy as possible to the flue gases, reaching a high efficiency power conversion. The reader will understand the general purpose of this work; being a first approximation of a completely new concept in electricity production from thermo solar sources.

The Project's origin As a consequence of the so-called "first oil crisis", the interest in solar electricity generation rose sharply after 1973. The solar ther mal way of solving the problem was attractive because the main task was simply to replace the fossil fuel by a "solar fuel" in an other wise conventional thermal power plant -that was at least what many thought at that time. Thus more than half a dozen of solar thermal plant projects were created in the mid-seventies. One of them is the Small Solar Power Systems (SSPS) Project of the International Energy Agency (lEA). It consists of the design, development, construction, operation, test and evaluation of two dissimilar small solar thermal electric power systems each at a nominal power of 500 kW . e ITET and TOAB In order to assist the Operating Agent (DFVLR - Deutsche Forschungs und Versuchsanstalt fUr Luft- und Raumfahrt e. V. ) in managing the project, the Executive Committee (EC) created two bodies called the "International Test and Evaluation Team" (ITET) and the "Test and Operation Advisory Board" (TOAB). The latter consisted of a group of experts from the different participating countries, meeting three to four times a year to articulate i. a. the technical interests and expectations of the different parties in the project.

Concentrating solar power (CSP) technology is poised to take its place as one of the major contributors to the future clean energy mix. Using straightforward manufacturing processes, CSP technology capitalises on conventional power generation cycles, whilst cost effectively matching supply and demand though the integration of thermal energy storage. Concentrating solar power technology provides a comprehensive review of this exciting technology, from the fundamental science to systems design, development and applications. Part one introduces fundamental principles of concentrating solar power systems. Site selection and feasibility analysis are discussed, alongside socio-economic and environmental assessments. Part two focuses on technologies including linear Fresnel reflector technology, parabolic-trough, central tower and parabolic dish concentrating solar power systems, and concentrating photovoltaic systems. Thermal energy storage, hybridization with fossil fuel power plants and the long-term market potential of CSP technology are explored. Part three goes on to discuss optimisation, improvements and applications. Topics discussed include absorber materials for solar thermal receivers, design optimisation through integrated techno-economic modelling, heliostat size optimisation, heat flux and temperature measurement technologies, concentrating solar heating and cooling for industrial processes, and solar fuels and industrial solar chemistry. With its distinguished editors and international team of expert contributors, Concentrating solar power technology is an essential guide for all those involved or interested in the design, production, development, optimisation and application of CSP technology, including renewable energy engineers and consultants, environmental governmental departments, solar thermal equipment manufacturers, researchers and academics. Provides a comprehensive review of concentrating solar power (CSP) technology, from the fundamental science to systems design, development and applications Reviews fundamental principles of concentrating solar power systems, including site selection and feasibility analysis and socio-economic and environmental assessments Provides an overview of technologies such as linear Fresnel reflector technology, parabolic-trough, central tower and parabolic dish concentrating solar power systems, and concentrating photovoltaic systems

The utilisation of renewable energies is not at all new; in the history of mankind renewable energies have for a long time been the primary possibility of generating energy. This only changed with industrial revolution when lignite and hard coal became increasingly more important. Later on, also crude oil gained importance. Offering the advantages of easy transportation and processing also as a raw material, crude oil has become one of the prime energy carriers applied today. Moreover, natural gas used for space heating and power provision as well as a transportation fuel has become increasingly important, as it is abundantly available and only requires low investments in terms of energy conversion facilities. As fossil energy carriers were increasingly used for energy generation, at least by the industrialised countries, the application of renewable energies decreased in absolute and relative terms; besides a few exceptions, renewable energies are of secondary importance with regard to overall energy generation.

The electricity has become an indispensable element of today's society. Demand is growing continuously and the production is still based on limited sources of energy such as coal and petroleum derivate products. Environmental issues, such as global warming, and the uncertainty about the quantity of the conventional fossil fuels are forcing suppliers to find new solutions for the near future. In this assignment, concentrated solar thermal technologies for electricity generation could play a relevant role in the near future. Sun is the largest source of power in this planet, and in fact, the only one coming from outer space. All sources of energy are ultimately derived from the sun1. It only seems logical to learn how profit from this vast income of power for sustainable human purposes, such as energy production. It is proven that concentrated solar power is feasible; however, it is hardly adjustable to the electricity demand when complete energy from sun is expected. Large storage tanks and backup systems are used to reach peak demand or in times of little or no sunlight. This thesis is based on a bibliographic study about the actual development of concentrated solar power. After the analysis, there is a proposal about a combined cycle powered for two different relevant solar technologies: central tower receiver and parabolic trough. The first is already being implemented and has proven its feasibility. However, the efficiencies reached are low compared with actual sources of power. On the other hand, recent developments in central tower receivers, ensures a high efficiency power conversion and the possibility of combination with actual gas-steam combined cycle. This thesis purposes and analyzes a new solar power plant configuration. A combination of the actual already tested parabolic trough collectors with a central receiver and its association to a gas-steam combined cycle.
