Title: HYBRID POWER PLANT BASED ON THE USE OF SOLAR ENERGY AND BIOMASS, AND FUNCTIONING METHOD THEREOF
Abstract:
The invention relates to a hybrid power plant based on the use of solar energy and biomass, comprising: a solar receptor (1) of molten salts; a storage tank (3) for cold salts connected to the receptor; a storage tank (4) for hot salts, where the salts are stored once heated in the receptor; a vapour generator (5); a power block (7) configured to generate electricity from the overheated vapour coming from the vapour generator (5); a condenser (6); an exchanger (24) for heat between the water coming from the condenser (6) and the products obtained in a thermo-chemical treatment of biomass decomposition; a system of water-vapour heat exchangers (49) positioned in series and configured to pre-heat the water coming from the heat exchanger (24) before entry into the vapour generator (5); and an exchanger (9) for heat between salts and biomass.
