Australians increase efficiency solar steam under additional pressure
The Australian research Csiro has managed to get that generators can achieve that normally only achievable with fossil fuels. Return using solar steam under such a high pressure
Using six hundred solar thermal collectors heat researchers from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation in a water tower which steam. Thus, a generator can be driven. The mirrors are then fully automatically controlled to deliver. Solar heat at an ideal angle The scientists say their system is now able to be able to generate steam at very high pressure, the steam was during an experiment that is kept at a pressure of 23.5 MPa, in May or 3400psi, put at a temperature of 570 ° C.

Steam under such a high pressure and temperature is also known as super critical and is referred to by the absence of gas bubbles during the heating process is able to produce in a subcritical steam generator than at a lower pressure. Considerably the efficiency of electricity Until now it was only possible with fossil fuels to generate power for use in steam under high pressure on a large scale but Csiro also claims his solar thermal system will now be able to generate. Efficient power Although more research is needed before the design can be placed in power the Australian research suggests that his system is entirely green power with high efficiency and lower costs.
