In this model Linear Fresnel Collector (LFC) has been used as power source for thermal desalination process. LFC is considered as as a brine heater (steam source) for evaporation via direct vapor generation through the solar field. Flash evaporation tank is used to generate the steam from the heated brine from the solar field. The brine content from the flash tank is considered as a blowdown or rejected brine. End Condenser unit is used for condensation process. Seawater or saline water will be pumped directly to the solar field. Free salt steam will be directly goes towards the condenser unit for condensation and fresh water production. Seawater will go first through the condenser unit for the cooling purpose of the extracted steam that coming from the solar field. Nanofilteration unit is added in order to reduce the salinity contents in the intake saline water. It will be considered as a pre-stage before the condenser unit. All auxiliaries will be powered via the main grid. The cycle contains the following:

1-Pump unit.

2-Nanofilteration unit.


4-Linear Fresnel Collector (LFC).

5-Flash evaporation Tank.

6-Cost block.

The current model is a design model so the user will be able to calculate the following:

1-Design area.

2-Thermal efficiency.

3-Exergy results.

4-Design aspects such as loops and mirrors.

5-Cost analysis.

The user has to apply for the 2nd updated version that been considered within the download folder.
