Solar Receivers for Thermal Power Generation: Fundamentals and Advanced Concepts looks at different Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) systems, their varying components, and the modeling and optimization of solar receivers. The book combines the detailed theory of receivers, all physical concepts in the process of converting solar radiation into electricity in CSP systems, and the main components of CSP systems, including solar concentrators, thermal receivers and power blocks. Main properties and working principles are addressed, along with the principles of solar resources and energy output of CSP systems and solar radiation.

By covering different types and designs of solar receivers, heat transfer fluids, operating temperatures, and different techniques used in modeling and optimizing solar receivers, this book is targeted at academics engaged in sustainable energy engineering research and students specializing in power plant solarization.
