This model is about power generation by the use of concentrated solar tower system (CST). Solar tower has been used for Steam Rankine Cycle (SRC). User can assign the power rate in order to obtain all design aspects such as:
1-CST field design (area, No. of mirrors, tower height, etc..).
2-Design aspects for steam Rankine cycle.
3-Cost analysis are considered.
4-Energy, Exergy, and thermo-economic streams are calculated.
5-Molten salt heat transfer fluid is used through the CST.
6-Water steam is used for steam Rankine cycle.
7-Boiler heat exchanger-Storage unit is used as an intermediate unit.
8-Single storage with embedded pump unit is used.
9-Mechanical draft cooling tower.
**Watch the tutorial video:
**MatLab-SimuLink should be used to run the model.
