Supercritical CARbon dioxide/Alternative fluids Blends for Efficiency Upgrade of Solar power plants

Deliverables

Second Dissemination and Communication Plan

This updated plan will contain all the information regarding overall dissemination activity: type of activities, schedule, who’s who information (roles and responsibilities) of both the past and future dissemination activities. This is devised as a roadmap to any information produced by the project

Final Dissemination and Communication Plan

This final plan will contain all the information regarding overall dissemination activity: type of activities, schedule, who’s who information (roles and responsibilities) of both the past and future dissemination activities. This is devised as a roadmap to any information produced in the last part of the project

Final Data Management Plan

This is the updated version of the Data Management Plan which will contain the data management strategy and the consortium’s policy on the management of information. Regular updates will be implemented though non-regular updates will also be possible whenever it is justified by the development of the project. The DMP will make use of the template provided by the EC.

Report on Best Available Technologies (BAT) for central receiver systems

This deliverable presents the outcome of Subtask 5.1.1. It collects the information about the Best Available Technologies (from a techno-economic standpoint) amongst those currently used in (i.e. steam Rankine cycle) or potentially applicable to (i.e., already proposed in literature) CSP plants based on central receiver systems. This information constitutes a mandatory starting point since it will later be used to benchmark SCARABEUS. The sources for information will be the scientific literature and the proprietary information owned by the industry partners of the consortium that have experience in the design, construction and operation of CSP power plants as well as information from scientific databases.

Dynamic simulation report

This report D6.3 will present the simulation results of Task 6.2 ‘Supportive modelling and simulation’. In particular, an evaluation of transient phenomena concerning scaling effects by dynamic simulation using APROS will be reported. In this report a deeper investigation of process and component behavior as well as parameter setting for the control design and the results of extrapolation to industrial scale installations will be presented.

Preliminary Data Management Plan

The Data Management Plan will follow the guidelines set forth in the Open Research Data Pilot in Horizon 2020. This DMP will contain the data management strategy and the consortium’s policy on the management of information. Regular updates will be implemented though non-regular updates will also be possible whenever it is justified by the development of the project. The DMP will make use of the template provided by the EC.

Public report on the heat transfer characteristics using CO2 blends

This report summarizes the achievements of deliverable 4.1 and 4.2 which can be disclosed and publically available

Dissemination, Communication & Exploitation Databases - Report of activities

The Dissemination, Communication and Exploitation Database will store the Dissemination Plan along with the information produced by any other dissemination and exploitation activity. This repository will be made accessible from the project website and will include D7.3 which will be a report of all the activities developed along with instructions about how to retrieve this information. At least two updates are scheduled (halfway through the project and at the end of it) even if more frequent updates will be needed to ensure that the time lapse between generation of the information and access to it is kept to a minimum.
