The objectives of the project for commercial solar power plants are the following:
- The development of specific point sensors (optical and/or thermal) for the precise and robust measurement of concentrated solar radiation in the conditions expected in commercial plants.
- The combination of specific measurement systems (sensors, thermocouples) with other systems capable of global measurements or estimations over large areas (cameras VIS and IR).
- Integrating these systems into the design of solar receivers in tower plants.
- Analysis and evaluation of the integration of the measurement system in the plants control system.
The development of this technology will provide COBRA with a significant commercial advantage in the area of thermal solar energy not only through the durability of the key plant components (solar receivers) but also through their efficiency, which will bring about a reduction in energy production costs and will make a positive contribution to the competitiveness of the company at an international level.
This project has been co-financed by the Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico Industrial (CDTI) in the 2016 FEDER-INNTERCONECTA program.
The total budget of the project is 2,629,447€.
