 A book eminently practical and graphic, that analyzes solar termal power Plants with central tower technology,  with heat storage and with generation direct from steam. 

Edited by color, it has an excellent explanations supporting graphic material. Throughout its more than 300 pages in color details the principles of performance, the solar field of heliostats, central receiver, the thermal storage system, the water-steam cycle, steam turbine and auxiliary systems.

If these plants represent the solar thermal future, replacing the CSC plants as favorite by promoters and investors, professionals and companies in the solar thermal world are required to know them better if they want to maintain their knowledge and be competitive. With three plants in operation, in Spain, and with multiple projects in the world the advantages presented by this technology are indisputable:

  • Price
  • Production capacity
  • The absence of fluid fuels
  • Storage capacity
  • Load coefficient
  • Hybridization possibilities
  • The manageability
  • The book also respects the essential characteristics of the RENOVETEC books:
  • Not is a basic book 
  • Deals each chapter with depth and rigour
  • Each statement is contrasted with real-life experiences

A foundational book in the library of a renewable energy professional
