Overview of Concentrated Solar Thermal Solutions
When sun sets or gets blocked by clouds, there is a reduction or curtailed energy production in the usage of solar energy. This is one of the major problem facing the widespread use of solar energy. This is where the thermal energy storage comes into the picture. Concentrated solar power provides a workable solution to this problem.
What is concentrating solar power (CSP)?
Concentrating solar power (also known as concentrated solar thermal (CST)) systems generate solar power by mirrors or lenses to concentrate a large area of sunlight, or solar thermal energy, onto a small area. Therefore, it generates electricity when the concentrated light gets converted to heat, which drives a heat engine (usually a steam turbine) connected to an electrical power.
In simpler words, the Concentrating Solar Thermal Power Systems (CSTs) concentrate the Solar Power to create steam to drive steam turbines and generate electricity. For Instance, we can use the generated steam for applications like heating water bodies and so on.
