Geometrical Exploration of a Flux-Optimised Sodium Receiver through Multi-Objective Optimisation

Asselineau, Charles-Alexis; Corsi, Clothilde; Coventry, Joseph; Pye, John


A stochastic multi-objective optimisation method is used to determine receiver geometries with maximum second law efficiency, minimal average temperature and minimal surface area. The method is able to identify a set of Pareto optimal candidates that show advantageous geometrical features, mainly in being able to maximise the intercepted flux within the geometrical boundaries set. Receivers with first law thermal efficiencies ranging from 87% to 91% are also evaluated using the second law of...[Show more]
