Abstract

The Archimede Project, developed by ENEA, is shortly presented, along with the problems related to the operating of a wide industrial size high temperature solar power station. The importance of a reliable simulation tool able to predict the behavior of the plant in the design of control strategies is high-lighted. The innovative thermo fluid dynamic models of the plant, developed on the Matlab/Simulink® platform, are presented. The applications of these models to the experimental PCS facility allowed to demonstrate their reliability and to consider their use in the simulation of the complex network of the Priolo Gargallo solar power station, in order to study control strategies and to match controllers to the mathematical model of the plant.
