Model Library for the transient simulation of direct steam generating collector fields

A numerical tool is set up based on the object-oriented Modelica language to simulate the transient behaviour of parabolic trough collector rows. Detailed analysis on the response of the system to fluctuations in solar irradiation are carried out. The tool allows for implementation of a plant control system. Due to the object-oriented structure of the code the components can be arranged in various configurations. Also adaption to other pipe flow applications can be simulated after minor adaptions to the models.
