TEWER has the most advanced software
for modeling and calculation
Slope error calculation of heliostats through image processing BCS, distribution of light reflected by the heliostat on the target.
Calculated with proprietary software based on Ray-Tracing, TEWER has validated this software at Plataforma Solar de Almeria and it has been already used in supporting Cobra Thermosolar Plants Inc. at solar field calculations of Crescent Dunes Project in Tonopah (NV).
Estimation of energy flow on receiver under different operating conditions and assumptions for the output of the heliostats, based on:
Layout of the solar field
Geometry and performance of heliostats
Environmental conditions of the site
Ray Tracing methodology is used to evaluate the distribution of energy flow in the tower. This method evaluates the energy flow contributed by each heliostat in the solar field. The integration of the entire solar field allows estimation of the total energy flux received by each component of the tower and the receiver.
