Performance of molten sodium vs. molten salts in a packed bed thermal energy storage
Concentrating solar power plants are currently working with Solar Salt and conventional Rankine steam power cycles with upper temperatures of 565 C. To achieve higher efficiencies, advanced power cycles are currently investigated (500–700 C). As heat transfer fluids, both molten sodium and three types of molten salt are considered in this study. For power tower plants, the heat transfer fluid is typically also the storage medium. This is the case for state-of-the-art commercial plants using...[Show more]
