Cavity Receiver in SAM 2016/03/14

hello Paul ,
where is the Cavity Receiver in SAM 2016/03/14 ?

Dear Melek,

No, the cavity receiver is not an option for the power tower model in SAM 2016.3.14. It is available in SAM 2014.1.14. We do hope to reintroduce it in a future version of SAM.

Best regards,
Paul.

Hello,
When simulating a small CSP Tower tech (30MWe) plant, the heliostat field is not a circular one, therefore cavity receiver parameters shall be available in the SAM Model. Are cavity receivers an option in SAM?
Thanks in advance,
*It's such a great tool, I'm begining to be familiar with SAM for running simulations purposes.

Dear Diego,

As I mentioned in my reply above, the power tower models in the latest versions of SAM do not support cavity receivers. If you would like to model a system with a cavity receiver, you can download SAM 2014.1.14 from the Downloads page. To see a list of download links for the legacy versions, you must first log on to the SAM website.

Best regards,
Paul.

Thank you very much for the answer.
