Abstract

In this paper, exergy analysis of the different design concepts of receivers/reactors utilized for the Thermochemical Energy Conversion process (TCEC) of the concentrated solar energy is presented. The analysis considers all the exergy interactions taking place during the TCEC process. The proposed model has been used to compare the general thermochemical behavior of the three general types of receivers/reactors used for the TCEC process operated in both continuous and discontinuous flow regimes. Comparison of the thermal characteristics of the TCEC process with other Sensible Thermal Energy and Phase Change Thermal Energy Conversion processes has also been presented.
