Solar Thermal Cogeneration Plant based on Organic Rankine Cycle
The EFISOL project has developed an efficient and cost effective solar energy system for combined electrical energy power and hot water production that uses concentrated beam solar radiation as the primary energy source. Its Heat Storage Tank is capable of storing enough heat energy (1600 kWh, giving two hours storage capability) at the appropriate temperature (of about 110 to 270°C) during the day to deliver it back continuously, at the correct rate and at the required temperature, during periods of reduced insulation.
In the project, Inspiralia has developed the design of a novel solar concentrator, involving design of tracker structure and modelling of thermodynamics in the concentrator.
