The doctoral candidates presented their projects during the sessions:

  • Sergio Díaz presented a flux density measurement system for the reduction of heliostat and receiver losses (DC1, DLR).
  • Israel Aguilera talked about the perspectives of his study on turbulent boiling flows in a DSG solar receiver (DC2, CNRS)
  • Eylül Gedik talked about improved steam cycle layouts to improve flexibility of the power block of CSPplants (RWTH, DC3).
  • Vahid Safari presented the experimental and numerical work planned to study molten salt receivers (UC3M, DC4).
  • Vladimir Naumov showed preliminary designs of cycles with sCO2 mixtures (UNIBS, DC5).
  • Hussein Al-Saaidi (Universidad de Sevilla) presented a proposal for the electrification of the thermal storage that helps to hybridize CSP with other renewables (US, DC6).
  • Alejandro González presented preliminary results of the simulation of solar receivers used for solar fuel production (POLIMI, DC7).
  • Jorge Moreno presented a proposal for a development of generative designs of solar tower receivers (CyI, DC8).
  • Tom Todtenhaupt talked about his project to develop Reduced Order Models to optimize the receiver and the solar field (VM, DC9).
  • Mariasun Palmero presented the scope of her LCA analysis of a CSP plant (JCR, DC10).
