- ... A latent heat storage system for concentrated solar plants (CSP) is numerically examined by means of CFD simulations. This study aims at identifying the convective flows produced within the melted phase by temperature gradients and gravity. Simulations were carried out on experimental devices for applications to high temperature concentrated solar power plants. A shell-and-tube geometry composed b ...
