The course focuses on the design and management methodologies for molten salt CSP systems that use linear solar collectors.
The training consists of both theoretical and practical modules . It will include visits, procedures, standards and best practices theoretical and experimental ‘hands-on’ experiences, Knowledge-Transfer and Networking.

It will cover the following topics:

  • Molten salts as heat transfer fluids and heat storage media
  • CSP plants with molten salts as HTF heat transfer fluid & HSM
  • Heat storage medium
  • Molten salt processes
  • Technologies for CSP molten salt plants
  • Practical test cases
