Solar Lab Inauguration

During the last 3 years, the solar group at the division of Heat and Power Technology has built a unique and one of the strongest indoor solar laboratories for high flux solar research. With its versatility concerning light quality and strength, the laboratory is perfectly suited to conduct research for concentrated solar power, solar heating, concentrated PV, high temperature solar reactors and high temperature materials at relevant component scales. At the moment 3 international and national CSP research projects are beeing conducted in the laboratory, designing solar receivers for micro-turbines and stirling dish solutions. We are also going to demonstrate the complete CSP micro-turbine system in the laboratory.
Join us in the inauguration of this facility!
