Description

The Performance of Concentrated Solar Power Systems: Modelling, Measurement and Assessment provides all necessary information on the state-of-the-art of modeling, measurement, and assessment of the performance of CSP components and systems in a comprehensive, compact, and complete manner.

As there is no single literature source available for readers looking for a complete overview of the performance assessment tools and methods currently used for concentrated solar power (CSP) technology, this book fills that void.

Key Features

  • Presents a unique, single literature source for a complete overview of the performance assessment tools and methods currently used for concentrated solar power (CSP) technology
  • Written by a team of experts in the field of CSP
  • Provides information on the state-of-the-art of modeling, measurement, and assessment of the performance of CSP components and systems in a comprehensive, compact, and complete manner

Readership

Research and development professionals and engineers working on concentrated solar power systems as well as postgraduate students studying CSP
