THE ITALIAN SOLAR PILOT TEST FACILITY
This report deals with the second phase of the work programme provided for by contract No. ESA-T-109-I (S) (with ENEL and Phoebus) from October 1981 to June 1983. The work programme is the continuation of the Solar Pilot Test Facility project. The report describes the operations performed by the Italian SPTF plant; they include system configuration and software modifications, operational check procedures, calibration of various instruments, system parameters measurement, data production and storage. The system behaviour studies are then presented, with an analysis of the results obtained in various Solar System 1 and Solar System 2 configurations: furthermore, a chapter is devoted to the description of the links between the Pilot Test Facility group and the European modelling group, and examples are given of model validation work. Finally, conclusions are drawn from the work so far carried out and recommendations are made for the future work.
