Cost optimisation of DSG thermal storage system

Research areas

Temporary Supervisor

Dr John Pye


The aim of this project is to develop an exergetically-optimised and
cost-optimised cycle for direct steam generation (DSG) with solar
collectors, coupled with thermal energy storage in molten salt. Cost
curves for different pieces of equipment would be determined, then
incorporated into the cycle model and an optimisation algorithm applied
to determine the optimal design.
