SOLAR FIELD COURSE IN CSP PLANTS 

In this course, the concepts of radiation, evaluation of solar resources, dimensioning, solar field efficiency, design point, solar collectors and its principal elements, civil work, collector’s efficiency and more will be analysed. The main objective is that the attendees know the design parameters of a solar field as well as the factors on which the parameters depend. That way, the attendee will be able to understand how the actions are carried out in a solar field, from the evaluation of the solar resource to the starting up.
