DSG solar field design basics

Conceptual development of the solar field for a DSG plant of 5MW. A DSG solar field was designed to be coupled to a power cycle delivering 5MWe net electrical power.

Parabolic trough collector loops were sized and the process values defined according to the requirements of the steam turbine. An iterative process was carried out in order to maximize solar-to-electric efficiency of the power plant. Special attention was paid at this preliminary stage to power cycle - solar field integration issues, defining specific equipment in order to properly link the requirements of water and steam from both sides.
