The training will include visits to the solar simulators at IMDEA Energy Institute, including the High-Flux Solar Simulator (KIRAN-42), and also the laboratory facilities of the institute. All the activities, theoretical and experimental training, are within the scope of the following topics:

  • High flux solar simulators: overview, technology and applications;
  • Optical characterisation: overview and technology;
  • Thermal characterisation: overview and technology;
  • Solar receivers and reactors technologies and applications;
  • Application of high flux solar reactors for characterisation of solar receivers and reactors;
  • Practical test cases.
