SOLGATE - Solar hybrid gas turbine electric power system, Final Report

Project ID: ENK5-CT-2000-00333
Funded under: FP5-EESD


This brochure is the final publishable report of the project SOLGATE funded under the fifth RTD Framework programme (1999-2002). The project demonstrated the technical feasibility a new solar-hybrid power system. Solar radiation is used to heat air up to 800 degree Celsius that is send to the combustion chamber of a gas turbine.
The addition of hot air allows the reduction of gas consumption, reducing CO2 emission for a given power level. A 280kWe prototype gas turbine was modified and new solar receivers built. The complete installation was tested under real condition and connected to the grid. In the future turnkey system from 1MWe to 17MWe could be then offer to potential costumers.
