Title: Direct steam generation in parabolic trough solar power plants -- Numerical investigation of the transients and the control of a once-through system

Abstract

Direct steam generation (DSG) in parabolic troughs was first studied in the early eighties by Murphy (1982) and Pederson (1982). Intensive research on DSG then started in 1988, when Luz identified this technology as the desired system for a future generation of its power plants. These R and D activities were not terminated on Luz`s demise in 1991, but have been continued by several institutes and companies in Europe as well as in Israel (Dagan et al., 1991, Mueller et al., 1992a,b, 1993, 1994). This paper concerns the dynamic reaction of the water-steam flow. In order to investigate this, a numerical simulation program was developed at the ZSW. The numerical approach, its verification, and results of an extended study concerning the reaction and the control(ability) of a once-through DSG system at different weather conditions are presented.
