    A Techno-Economic Analysis Of Hybrid Concentrating Solar Power And Solar Photovoltaic Power Plants For Firm Power In Morocco2016In: Journal of solar energy engineering, ISSN 0199-6231, E-ISSN 1528-8986Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study evaluates the optimum configurations and operating strategies of hybrid concentrating solar power and solar photovoltaic power plants for minimizing levelized costs of electricity. These configurations were also required to meet specific design objectives as provided by competitive bid tenders, such as power plant size and operating hours, for a suitable location near Midelt, Morocco. A detailed techno-economic model of the hybrid plant was developed at KTH’s in-house optimization tool DYESOPT, which allows power plant evaluation by means of technical and economic performance indicators. Results show that hybrid plants are able to achieve higher capacity factors. It is also confirmed that, under current cost estimates, hybridization enables a lower cost solution for a given high capacity factor objective than what is achievable either with stand-alone concentrating solar power or solar photovoltaic power plants, respectively. The analysis highlights synergies among the technologies and shows the relation and influence between sizing and operation of their critical components. Main challenges for successful hybridization are also raised together with recommendations for addressing them. Lastly, optimum configurations found for different tender conditions are compared and a brief discussion section at the end is introduced to highlight the relevance of adequate policy design and its impact on the work of project developers for proposing the most competitive solutions

    Development and implementation of a dynamic TES dispatch control component in a PV-CSP techno-economic performance modelling tool2017In: AIP Conference Proceedings, American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2017, Vol. 1850, article id 160013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The dispatchability offered by thermal energy storage (TES) in concentrated solar power (CSP) and solar hybrid plants based on such technology presents the most important difference compared to power generation based only on photovoltaics (PV). This has also been one reason for recent hybridization efforts of the two technologies and the creation of Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) payment schemes based on offering higher payment multiples during daily hours of higher (peak or priority) demand. Recent studies involving plant-level thermal energy storage control strategies are however to a large extent based on pre-determined approaches, thereby not taking into account the actual dynamics of thermal energy storage system operation. In this study, the implementation of a dynamic dispatch strategy in the form of a TRNSYS controller for hybrid PV-CSP plants in the power-plant modelling tool DYESOPT is presented. In doing this it was attempted to gauge the benefits of incorporating a day-ahead approach to dispatch control compared to a fully pre-determined approach determining hourly dispatch only once prior to annual simulation. By implementing a dynamic strategy, it was found possible to enhance technical and economic performance for CSP-only plants designed for peaking operation and featuring low values of the solar multiple. This was achieved by enhancing dispatch control, primarily by taking storage levels at the beginning of every simulation day into account. The sequential prediction of the TES level could therefore be improved, notably for evaluated plants without integrated PV, for which the predicted storage levels deviated less than when PV was present in the design. While also featuring dispatch performance gains, optimal plant configurations for hybrid PV-CSP was found to present a trade-off in economic performance in the form of an increase in break-even electricity price when using the dynamic strategy which was offset to some extent by a reduction in upfront investment cost. An increase in turbine starts for the implemented strategy however highlights that this is where further improvements can be made.

    Enhancing economic competiveness of dish Stirling technology through production volume and localization: Case study for Morocco2017In: SOLARPACES 2016: International Conference on Concentrating Solar Power and Chemical Energy Systems, American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2017, Vol. 1850, article id 050002Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study quantifies the reduction in the levelized cost of electricity (LCoE) and capital expenditure (CAPEX) of a dish Stirling power plant (DSPP) through an increase in localization and unit production volume. Furthermore, the localization value of the plant is examined to determine how much investment is brought into the local economy. Ouarzazate, Morocco, was chosen as the location of the study due to the country's favorable regulatory framework with regards to solar power technologies and its established industry in the concentrating solar power (CSP) field. A detailed techno-economic model of a DSPP was developed using KTH's in-house modelling tool DYESOPT, which allows power plant evaluation by means of technical and economic performance indicators. Results on the basis of LCoE and CAPEX were compared between two different cases of production volume, examining both a minimum and maximum level of localization. Thereafter, the DSPP LCoE and localization value were compared against competing solar technologies to evaluate its competitiveness. In addition, a sensitivity analysis was conducted around key design parameters. The study confirms that the LCoE of a DSPP can be reduced to values similar to solar photovoltaic (PV) and lower than other CSP technologies. Furthermore, the investment in the local economy is far greater when compared to PV and of the same magnitude to other CSP technologies. The competiveness of a DSPP has the potential to increase further when coupled with thermal energy storage (TES), which is currently under development.
