An optimization tool to design the field of a solar power tower plant allowing heliostats of different sizes [Article]
The design of a Solar Power Tower plant involves the optimization of the heliostat field layout. Fields are usually designed to have all heliostats of identical size. Although the use of a single heliostat size has been ...
Solving nonconvex planar location problems by nite dominating sets [Article]
It is well-known that some of the classical location problems with polyhedral gauges can be solved in polynomial time by nding a fi nite dominating set, i.e. a finite set of candidates guaranteed to contain at least one ...
Optimization of multiple receivers solar power tower systems [Article]
In this article a new procedure to optimize the design of a Multiple Receivers Solar Power Tower system is presented. The proposed procedure allows to optimize the different receivers (height, aperture tilt angle, azimuth ...
A heuristic method for simultaneous tower and pattern-free field optimization on solar power systems [Article]
A heuristic method for optimizing a solar power tower system is proposed, in which both heliostat field (heliostat locations and number) and the tower (tower height and receiver size) are simultaneously considered. Maximizing ...
