SIMULATION OF YEARLY ENERGY FOR SOLAR HEATING SYSTEM

Abstract : To perform ray tracing simulation during the design process of a central solar receiver, we have developed a code based on Monte Carlo algorithm suitable for computing the yearly average energy at the entrance of the receiver of a solar power tower. This code considers sun positions over the year. Based on EDStaR coding environment, it is fast and accurate and will be integrated inside an optimization scheme to design solar Central Receiver System (CRS) with enhanced annual performance.
