Core competence of the working group „Systems“ is the development and the application of measurement techniques to evaluate and optimize the quality of collectors as well as complete solar fields during plant operation. This encompasses:
As measurement methods we use photogrammetry and deflectometry, flux density and infrared measurements. The data is evaluated by image processing techniques and for the interpretation we use various modelling and simulation approaches.
In addition to our R&D tasks we provide technical assistence on site to optimize operating solar power plants. In the framework of the enerMENA project we train and educate CSP experts and technical staff for CSP plants in the MENA region.
