Development of novel particle receivers

Research areas

Description

Particle receivers are known to reach high temperatures and hold potential to increase the thermal efficiency of a CSP plant. Free falling particle receivers are simple in their functionality but hold several issues that needs to be addressed. In the current project, the student will test novel design ideas of a particle receiver experimentally.
