thermal storage for csp fluctuations

dear paul,
i am currently trying to design a CSP system with thermal storage. the results that SAM gave me are not coherent with the weather DATA. in other words in cold and cloudy months like January we have more energy that is put into storage than months with high temperature and high irradiance like August or July.
regards.

Freeze Protection

Hi I modeling a process heat parabolic trough and a chose Therminol VP-1 as a HTF, I chose a 40 C for freeze protection temp, 90 and 350 as a loop inlet and outlet HTF tem. In the summary I get the annual thermal freeze protection equal zero. Is that possible?

Thank you.

Model validation

Hello,

I am modelling a solar industrial process heating system for Abu Dhabi. I would like you to help me in validating the model for my project. Also, I would like to know how to get the required land area for the system in SAM. I have attached my model with the data file for reference. Can you tell me more about 'stochastic' and 'parametric'? Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Mubarak

SCA library

Hello,

How can I introduce the SCA model that I want in the SCA library to implement its parameters?
I'm looking forward for your answer.

Design 10MW PTC solar thermal power plant

NEED HELP!!!
I'm modelling a 10MW solar thermal power plant (PTC) for my final year project as an undergraduate. I need some serious help. I need cost of individual components (not all of them) so that I can do a manual calculation(as my project supervisor asked) for the installments.

Solar Multiple and Storage Hours

We were expecting solar multiple to change with number of storage hours, but this was not the case. we want to know the effect of storage hours on the size of the solar field at the LCOH.

negative energy

Hi,
I performed a simulation for a parabolic trough power plant. I get a negatives values for annual energy,capacity factor, NPV,and
Internal rate of return (IRR) NaN
Year IRR is achieved NaN
IRR at end of project NaN.

Designing a CSP parabolic trough power plant

Hey, are there any tutorials for designing a CSP parabolic trough power plant?
I saw a video tutorial on youtube. But are there any other tutorials?
