Proc. ASME. ES2013, ASME 2013 7th International Conference on Energy Sustainability, V001T04A007, July 14–19, 2013
Paper No: ES2013-18350
... Parabolic trough technology is currently one of the most extended solar thermal systems for the production of electricity. This paper describes a thermo-economic study of an integrated, combined-cycle parabolic trough power plant. The parabolic trough plant is considered an economizer or a...

Proc. ASME. ES2012, ASME 2012 6th International Conference on Energy Sustainability, Parts A and B, 333-344, July 23–26, 2012
Paper No: ES2012-91109
... Within the last years, Linear Fresnel (LF) collector systems have been developed as a technical alternative to parabolic trough collector (PT) systems. In the past, LF systems focused on low- and medium temperature applications. Nowadays, LF systems equipped with vacuum receivers can be operated...

... interpretation is required. Therefore, this paper mainly assesses the influences of basic stochastic assumptions and suggests a methodology to consider suitable stochastic input, especially for parameters of systems still under research. As examples, the comparison between a parabolic trough plant with...
