Abstract

A commercial HCPV/T system, developed by Solergy, is installed at the airport of Rome, in Italy, as part of a prototype smart grid. The system is rated at 15 kW AC electric and 20 kW thermal and is used to provide both electricity for charging electric vehicles and heat for a conventional thermal power plant. This paper presents an analysis of the performance of the system, operating since March 2017, which achieves a combined peak efficiency of 48%. This study incorporates also an investigation on the improvements that can benefit the system, including a new type of receiver with improved heat dissipation.
