EUROSUNMED and the University Network REUNET organised an international school


The University Network REUNET and the European Project EUROSUNMED, in partnership with the multi-disciplinary Faculty of Ouarzazate and MASEN, with the support of the GIZ “DKTI” programme and within the framework of the partnership convention REUNET/GIZ-Energy, organized a training on Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) for PhD students from 24 to 27 April 2017 in Ouarzazate (Morocco).

Sixty PhD students in the renewable energy domain with a strong knowledge in thermodynamics, thermal and mass transfer and fluid mechanics process engineering attended the training.

The main topics addressed during the training were:

  • Solar potentials
  • Basic knowledge of thermodynamic and thermal transfer
  • Concentrating thermodynamic solar
  • CSP essential principles
  • Technology of cylindrical parabolic trough collectors
  • Concentrating thermodynamic solar collectors : technology and functioning
  • Heat transfr fluids
  • Thermal storage for CSP plants
  • Power blocks
  • Modelling of concentrated solar power plant with parabolic trough and study of their efficiency
  • Dimensioning of a CSP plant
  • Setting up of a CSP project
