Assessing the Impact of Heat Rejection Technology on CSP Plant Revenue: Preprint

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This paper explores the impact of cooling technology on revenue for hybrid-cooled plants with varying wet cooling penetration for four representative locations in the American Southwest. The impact of ACC design-point initial temperature difference (ITD - the difference between the condensing steam temperature and ambient dry-bulb) is also included in the analysis.
