Field HTF energy inertial

Hello

I calculated the solar fiel warmup energy using the method descried in (sam_trough_model_type805.cpp) for empirical model but when i compare it with the calcul of Field HTF energy inertial (consumed), i don't have the same result.

how can i calculate the Field HTF energy inertial (consumed)?

I don't have the same calcul of everage temperature and Field HTF energy inertial (consumed).
the calcul warmup energy is the same of Field HTF energy inertial (consumed)???????

Yours sincerely

Internal Energy

Hello;

In my understanding : (Field Thermal Power Produced = Field Thermal Power Absorbed – Field Thermal Power Header Pipe Losses - Internal Energy Increase). How to calculate the Internal Energy Increase for parabolic trough plant??

Thanks in advance
Best Regards

parabolic trough

Hello

I would like to know how SAM calculates:

Field thermal power absorbed
Field thermal power dumped
Field thermal power receiver loss
Field thermal power header pipe losses
Field thermal power produced

and the relation between them. (version 2017.9.5)

best regard

How to apply changes to the source code?

Dear all,

I'm trying to derive the condenser pressure (P_cond) from the CSP parabolic trough physical model. Since this variable was not one of the defaulted outputs, I guessed I needed to modify the source code a little bit. But I found that I couldn't apply any change even after I modified the code. Here's what I did to test for the modification:

SAM TES dispatch w/solar

Good day Paul

I trust all is well. I had a pleasant time with Craig and Mark at SolarPaces. You weren't there were you?

Integrated solar combined cycle using Aspen tech. with SAM

Hello ..

It's my first time to use System Advisor Model (SAM) and i choose it in my graduation project: Simulation and optimization of an Integrated Solar Combined Cycle (ISCC) using Parabolic Through and Solar Tower and comparing between them. But beside SAM, i'm using Aspen Tech (Aspen HYSYS and Aspen Plus) to simulate the combined cycle part. So i'm asking if:

W/o solar power output difference

HI all

I am having trouble with results from the same model but two different input weather files. The one I run with meteonorm data for a location, the other I run with ground measured data entered into an existing SAM resource library file. (any advice on doing this the "right way" would be appreciated).

Please see the graphs attached. Can anybody explain why the meteonorm profile is higher during night-time operation than the ground-measured data night time operation?

Thanks
Frank

Turbine output control

Hi SAM team,

I'm working on a LK script to change some simulation inputs and I'm wondering if it's possible to change the turbine output fraction to an array. In my script, it sets the 'ui_disp_1_turbout' to hourly values over a year with no error, but after simulating, it shows that the turbine output fraction does not follow the assigned array, and just stays as a single value. Attached is an image of part of the code.

If this is not possible, is there a way to best mimic an off grid CSP system to follow the demand profile?

Parasitic power solar field HTF pump electrical power usage

Hi Paul and team

Simple question about the Parasitic power solar field HTF pump electrical power usage. I have had a look through the forum, the help file and the physical trough report. I am battling to find how this parasitic demand is calculated. In my results, the value rarely exceeds 1.3 MWe, which is way too low. Most plants I have seen in SA have installed capacities of around 3x 2 MW or more.
