nanoparticles suspended in the base-fluid, which decreases the temperature difference between the absorber and the fluid, and reduces the emissive losses at higher temperatures. The incident radiation being directly absorbed by the working fluid is illustrated…

…solar receivers with Therminol VP-1, as base fluid, and carbon-coated nanoparticles. A one-dimensional transient heat transfer model was developed to investigate the effect of solar concentration, receiver height and optical thickness on receiver…

…within the nanofluid. He concluded that the presence of nanoparticles increases the absorption of incident radiation by more than 9 times over pure water. The results showed that the performance of the receiver varies between 30% and 80% for different…

…for direct absorption that can work at high-temperatures is a big challenge. Supercritical CO2 , as a base fluid, has not been considered in the past in volumetric solar receivers with nanoparticles. However, it has several advantages that make it a…

…optical properties of s-CO2 are investigated; 2. A numerical model for volumetric receivers with nanoparticles has been developed. The 2-D steady-state model has been documented in chapter 3; 3. A comparative analysis of Therminol VP-1 and s-CO2 as the…

…These studies indicate that the addition of very small volume concentration (φ ≤ 0.15) of nanoparticles enhance significantly the properties of the mixture. Furthermore, the radiative properties of the s-CO2 and nanoparticles are described. 2…
