Thermoeconomic Analysis of a Solar Dish Micro Gas-Turbine Combined-Cycle Power Plant

A novel solar power plant concept is presented, based on the use of a coupled network of hybrid solar-dish micro gas-turbines, driving a centralized heat recovery steam generator and steam-cycle, thereby seeking to combine the high efficiency of the solar dish collector with a combined-cycle power block. A 150 MWe solar power plant was designed based on this concept and compared with both a conventional combined-cycle power plant and a hybrid solar-tower combined-cycle. The solar dish combined-cycle power plant could reach higher levels of solar integration than other concepts but was shown to be more expensive with current technology; solar electricity costs are double those of the hybrid solar-tower combined cycle.
