Brayton Solar Power Conversion System
Brayton Energy, under the CSP R&D FOA, is looking to demonstrate the viability and economics of a new concentrating solar thermal power conversion system.
The project focuses on designing and testing the power conversion system and integrating this system with a solar concentrator (dish), demonstrating system performance and viability. A series of component tests and critical technical milestones are planned prior to the final system test.
The system is an innovative concept, incorporating a very large dish with a Brayton-cycle engine and compressed air storage.
