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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
