NECSO’s new prototype enables the ageing testing for selectives of concentrating solar power absorbers

Concentrating Solar Power technology: NECSO project rolls out new test protocols for selective absorber tubes coating

2014-09-01

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) technology based on parabolic trough solar collectors for large-scale electricity generation is currently one of the most mature CSP designs in terms of previous operation experience, scientific and technical research and development. The stack of layers, used in solar absorber tubes is a combination of coatings with different compositions and thickness. The global performance depends on the nanometric properties of the entire stack. Some analysis have unveiled that during the working life, the solar absorber tubes suffer an ageing process, which reduces the global performance. NECSO, a European Commission project funded under the 7th Framework Programme, aims to design accelerated ageing protocols to test the evolution of the coatings during the entire receiver’s life.
