Annual H2 Production at this point: A new control strategy allows a more constant production rate of hydrogen. The temperature in the oxidizer is also more constant at 1350 K. (Work is ongoing on the control to further reduce remaining fluctuations.) [email protected] Bayon Read More …

AFTER Hydrogen production

Annual H2 Production AFTER: A new control strategy allows a more constant production rate of hydrogen. The temperature in the oxidizer is also more constant at 1350 K with the new control strategy. (Work is ongoing on the control to further reduce remaining fluctuations.) [email protected] Bayon Read More …

IMAGE: BEFORE: Showing the effect of DNI variation on h2 production before the fix. turq lines are the temperature in the receiver, and resulting variation (purple line) shows resulting variation in h2 production without the buffering of the tank and pump system controlling the flow of heated ceria particles.} the green line is 2nd reactor (making H2 is a two step process)
is more continuous, and it varies from 800 kelvin to 1250 kelvin. it doesnt need to be as hot. the oxidizer reaction is exothermic, it gives off heat Read More …

The proposed Aurora facility by SolarReserve in South Australia would supply 1,100 MWhs of stored solar daily for forty years, (150 MW x 8 hours of storage daily) compared to the 129 MWh (100 MW x 1.29 hours of storage capacity) Tesla battery Read More …

Alternative CST generation profiles

There are regional differences in peak loads through Australia depending on the generation mix on the grid, and VAST Solar illustrated how CST plants can be configured in different ways to answer varying needs. The ability to configure plants for dispatch strategies ranging between peaking to continuous output was widely discussed with many specific examples provided: @Vast Solar Read More …
