Validation of the FLAGSOL parabolic trough solar power plant performance model

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This paper describes the results of a validation of the FLAGSOL parabolic trough solar power plant performance model. The validation was accomplished by simulating an operating solar electric generating system (SEGS) parabolic trough solar thermal power plant and comparing the model output results with actual plant operating data. This comparison includes instantaneous, daily, and annual total solar thermal electric output, gross solar electric generation, and solar mode parasitic electric consumption. The results indicate that the FLAGSOL model adequately predicts the gross solar electric output of an operating plant, both on a daily and an annual basis.
