The new flow control valves will improve heat distribution and minimise risks at critical joints, allowing higher CSP temperatures and greater energy conversion efficiency, research group Sandia National Laboratories told Reuters Events. New flow control valves being developed by US researchers could help CSP developers meet ambitious cost reduction targets. [...]
Concentrated solar power plants are aggressive environments rife with high temperatures, drastic temperature changes, excessive vibration, extreme characteristics and volatile ambient conditions. Flow management systems, especially piping system components, must be able to perform reliably within these aggressive environments, and the materials from which these valves are manufactured play a [...]
Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) is an innovative solar power technology and has been taken by countries like Spain, USA, Dubai, Morocco, South Africa, China and India. With the great expansion of new-built power projects and official support, CSP markets especially in China and Middle East & North Africa (MENA) are [...]
