Development of a Dual-Pressure Air Receiver System for the SUNDISC Cycle
Dr JE Hoffmann
The SUNDISC cycle has been proposed to overcome shortcoming of Concentrating Solar Power plants with solarized gas turbines. In this dissertation, the performance of a SUNDISC cycle plant is presented. Additionally, the basic concept of a hybrid air receiver was demonstrated to not provide the desired outlet temperature, however, enhancements show potential for improved performance.
