Abstract EN

Solar power is a primary source of renewable energy and one of the most effective strategies for reducing emissions by reducing the consumption of fossil fuels.

Alkuraymat power station produces about 140 MWe divided into 120 MWe produced from a combined cycle and 20 MWe from a solar field with Therminol VP-1 as a heat transfer fluid.

For environmental considerations, the present work aims to evaluate the design parameters and thermal performance of the Alkuraymat power plant operated with parabolic trough solar field with thermal energy storage simulated by using System Advisor Model (SAM) software.

Alkuraymat location is suitable for using a concentrated solar thermal power plant due to receiving an annual direct normal irradiance of about 2, 522.15 kWh/m²/year.

The results indicated that the concentrated solar thermal power plant consists of 514 solar collector loops, with each loop comprising of 4 parabolic trough collectors.

As well, the proposed plant can produce annual electricity of efficiency of the power plant the 893.82 GWh andost Cevelized LRelated to the optimization of the system configuration, the is 19.4% .

thermal energy storage and the full load hours of, of energy equal to 4.79 Cents/kWhparabolic Additionally, the suggested design of thereduces from 16 to 12.5 hrs.

motivates further trough concentrated power plant and the study of its performance.
