SOLAR THERMAL POWER PLANTS 

Throughout the course, it examines solar thermal power plants from the design point of view, the steps to develop engineering, design software commonly used, the size of a solar field, the lay out of the block power, all concerning the HTF system (pressure, pumps, tanks calculation, filtration system, thermal insulation ... etc.).

Finally we analyze the basic equipment like Generation Train, Water Steam Cycle and Steam Turbine, with special attention to equipment in the market, the selection criteria and aspects to consider in the decision.

Course Objectives 

The main objective of this course is to know the main aspects related with the thermosolar and each one of the systems that compose them. Studying the solar radiation, the solar field and its theoretical and technical, the complex system of Heat Transfer Fluid (HTF), the water-steam cycle, auxiliary systems (balance of plant or BOP), the steam turbines and electrical systems of high voltage.
