fossil backup

Dear Gentlemen,

There is the concept “fossil backup” in SAM.

Does it mean the system that is active instead of the solar field after sunset ?

Dear Rahmi,

The fossil backup option in SAM's CSP models is intended to represent a backup boiler that burns natural gas to smooth out fluctuations in the system's power output during the day due to variation in the solar resource.

Best regards,
Paul.
