Abstract
Considering the state-of-the-art in TES technologies, two-tank indirect system using molten salt is the most widespread within CSP plants. However, current techniques for design and optimization, as well as, for assessing the behaviour of these systems are mainly based on not-to-scale costly experimental set-ups. In this paper, a detailed numerical methodology modelling molten salt thermal storage tanks is presented. This methodology considers the transient behaviour of the molten-salt fluid, th...
