There is only one hybrid csp-biomass power plant operating and it is situated in Lleida, Spain. In the thesis I will perform a modelling and a numerical simulation of the plant using TRNSYS programme, and compare the simulated results with the real ones. After having validated the model, I will upscale it to the size of a conventional csp parabolic trough power plant (around 50 MWe) to see if it is feasible to increase the size of such hybrid plants. In any case, either with positive or negative results, I will obtain some conclusions and report them regarding the advantages and limits of this new hybrid technology which is very promising for renewable electricity generation.
