The control of steam temperature in direct steam generation plants is challenging due
to the complex physical process involved in turning water into steam, and the variable
nature of solar radiation. This thesis explores the control of steam temperature
at the outlet of a mono-tube cavity receiver powered by a 500m2 dish concentrator,
using state feedback control. The dish concentrator, receiver and ancillary equipment
constitute the SG4 once-through steam generation system at the...[Show more]
