Concentrating Solar Power - Commercial Applications
Jeffrey Havelin, P.E.
This (Three-hour) course will serve as an informative guide specifically reviewing the basic concepts of Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) for large commercial applications, and conservation of water consumption for these specific applications.
Reduction of water consumption for these various applications has been a real concern and is the emphasis of this course, but it will also provide a detailed review the specific commercial applications. Four main concentrating solar power technologies are described in this report: parabolic troughs, linear Fresnel, power towers, and dish/engine, will be discussed in this course.This course is based entirely on “Concentrating Solar Power Commercial Application Study: Reducing Water Consumption of Concentrating Solar Power Electricity Generation” as published by The US Department of Energy, May 2009
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which
is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
This course will specifically review and provide an understanding of Concentrating Solar Power - Commercial Applications.
This course would be very informative for Architects or Professional Engineers that interested or involved with solar applications, or green technology.
Benefit for Attendee
This course recommends various measures that will provide an increased knowledge of various (CSP) applications.
The primary focus of this course has been to provide an increased knowledge parabolic troughs, linear Fresnel, power towers, and dish/engine, and their associated water consumption.
