Library's review

Volume 2 of this research project is a compilation of various important documents such as Phase II Test Plans, Procedures, Data, Daily Logs, Audit Reports Subsystem Displays and Turbine-Generator Failure. Solar thermal central receiver systems have been under development since the early

seventies. The first central receiver systems used water/steam as a heat transfer fluid in the receiver. Subsequent studies and test programs investigated molten salt, liquid sodium, and hot air as heat transfer fluids. They all possess certain advantages over water/steam, but many feel that molten nitrate salt is the most promising heat transfer fluid, particularly for utility-scale electric power plants with thermal storage.
