Analysis of the distribution of measured and synthetic DNI databases and its effect on the expected production of a parabolic trough plan [Article]
The generation of a Typical Meteorological Year (TMY) is a common practice in solar energy projects. Therefore it is desirable that the TMY provides not only a good estimate of the solar resource in the long term, but also ...
Assessment of a Global-to-Direct empirical model for the long-term characterization of Direct Normal Insolation [Article]
The statistical characterization of the solar resource (direct normal solar radiation) is a key point in the initial phases of a solar thermal electricity (STE) plant project. Ideally, this characterization should be based ...
Conditions in which a photovoltaic system is more viable than a low-temperature solar thermal system. [Presentation]
Photovoltaic (PV) and low-temperature solar thermal (LT-STH) are the most widely used technologies in the building sector. This study determines, depending on the most influential parameters, the conditions in which a PV ...
Process Heat Generation Potential from Solar Concentration Technologies in Latin America: The Case of Argentina [Article]
This paper evaluates the potential of solar concentration technologies—compound parabolic collector (CPC), linear Fresnel collector (LFC) and parabolic trough collector (PTC)—as an alternative to conventional sources of ...
