CAPTure Solar Receiver Prototype Testing

The innovative solar receiver is an open volumetric receiver allowing operating temperatures beyond 1000 °C. It provides the absorbed solar heat to the pressurized air circuit of the Brayton cycle via a network of fixed bed regenerative heat exchangers working in alternating modes (non-pressurized heating period, pressurized cooling period). After the integration of the CAPTure Solar receiver, it is being tested by CAPTure partner, FLAGSOL during January 2020.
