Solar Pond Power Systems
Water that contains a high concentration of salts.
Enhanced evaporation spray system is based on the evaporation of water from an elevated system of spray nozzles.
- Energy conversion
Conversion of one type of energy to another, e.g., solar radiation to heat, heat to electricity, etc.
The concentration gradient.
- Makeup water
Water that is added to a cycle to compensate for water losses due to leakage or because it had been intentionally used.
- Nonconvective solar pond
is a salt-gradient pond in which salt gradient effectively stops convection.
Organic Rankine cycle.
- Organic Rankine cycle
A Rankine cycle using an organic fluid as motive fluid instead of water which is commonly used.
- Pond yield
The ratio between the pond thermal or electrical energy production and the collected solar energy.
- Power plant
is a plant in which thermal or other energy is converted to electricity.
- Power station
A power plant.
- Salt-gradient solar pond
A solar pond utilizing...
