Proc. ASME. ES2020, ASME 2020 14th International Conference on Energy Sustainability, V001T02A013, June 17–18, 2020
Paper No: ES2020-1667
... demonstrated high thermal efficiencies for the receiver at nominal quiescent conditions, but further analysis was required to demonstrate that the receiver could maintain that thermal performance in a wide range of anticipated environments. In this study, the thermal efficiency was numerically evaluated using...

... efficiency, multi-stage. 1. INTRODUCTION The thermal efficiency of falling particle receivers for concentrating solar applications is dependent upon how solar irradiation is absorbed by the particles. A more opaque falling particle curtain will result in higher thermal efficiencies [1]. However, particle...

... component of future falling particle concentrating solar power plants to enable next-generation energy generation. High thermal efficiencies in a FPR are required to high thermodynamic efficiencies of the system. External winds can significantly impact the thermal performance of cavity-type FPRs primarily...
