Open AccessA 500 m2 industrial salinity-gradient solar pond (SGSP) was constructed in a mineral processing plant (Solvay Minerales) in Granada (Spain). This renewable energy technology was designed to supply a low-temperature heat ...
Enhancing the efficiency of solar pond heat extraction by using both lateral and bottom heat exchangers Alcaraz Segura, Aurora; Valderrama Angel, César Alberto; Cortina Pallás, José Luís; Akbarzadeh, Aliakbar; Farran Marsà, Adriana (2016-09)
Open AccessIn this study, heat extraction from both the gradient and heat storage zones of a salinity-gradient solar pond (SGSP) has been evaluated. For this purpose, an experimental solar pond pilot plant was constructed in 2009 in ...
Enhancing the thermal efficiency of a salinity gradient solar pond. Implementation of the study in the design, construction, salinity gradient establishment, operation and energy transfer at industrial scale Alcaraz Segura, Aurora (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-02-28)
Open AccessThe energy model in the last decades has been dominated by the consumption of fossil fuels assuming a high environmental cost. Global warming and the destruction of the ozone layer are two examples of the deterioration ...
