Abstract
In this study, an experimental investigation of the performance of a salinity gradient solar pond (SGSP) integrating solar collectors is presented. The SGSP is located in Barcelona (Spain) and has a cylindrical tank 3¿m in height and 8¿m in diameter with a total area of 50¿m2. For this purpose, four solar thermal collectors (10¿m2) are integrated, as an external source of heat, with the solar pond pilot plant in order to increase the storage capacity and its overall efficiency. The aim of th...
