High-Flux Microchannel Receiver Development

Project: Research project

Project Details


Oregon State University will continue development of a microchannel solar receiver, building on a current SunShot project, using supercritical CO2(sCO2) as the heat transfer fluid. The research will resolve key issues associated with the commercial viability of the technology, which allows for a radical reduction in the size of a solar central receiver. The project will culminate in an on-sun test of a commercial scale receiver module with a surface area of approximately 1 square meter.
