Gas engines are mechanical devices working theoretically on the P=C, and V=C cycles, or its modifications, in which compressible fluids, such as air, hydrogen, helium, nitrogen or even vapors, are used as working fluids. In this model, CSGE is used to power on and operate the Reverse Osmosis Desalination Plant.User should assign the plant productivity in order to get the design limits for desalination and solar parts.
Design model is developed to calculate the following:
1-Dish design parameters (area, efficiency, etc...).
2-Selecting Stirling or Brayton engines design parameters (volume, pressure, physical properties, etc...).
3-12 working gases are available for both engines.
User can assign some parameters such as:
2-Solar radiation data, W/m2.
3-Temperature and some physical properties.
5-RO membrane type (area, salinity, recovery ratio,No. of membranes, etc...).
RO types are:
1- RO basic
2- RO PWT
3- RO PEX

**MatLab-SimuLink should be used to run the model.
