Solar thermal electric plants
TC 117 Scope
To prepare international standards for systems of Solar Thermal Electric (STE) plants for the conversion of solar thermal energy into electrical energy and for all the elements (including all sub-systems and components) in the entire STE energy system.
The standards would cover all of the current different types of systems in the STE field, as follows:
- Parabolic trough;
- Solar tower;
- Linear Fresnel;
- Thermal storage.
The standards would define terminology, design and installation requirements, performance measurement techniques and test methods, safety requirements, "power quality" issues for each of the above systems.
The standards would also address issues of connectivity and interoperability with the power grid related to connections, bi-directional communicates and centralized control (Smart Grid) and environmental aspects.
