Technicians of IBIDEN.CN Visited Solar Thermal Power Plant
  Date:2014-04-29    
 

Three technicians of IBIDEN Co. Ltd of Japan have visited the solar thermal power plant of IEECAS in Yan Qing from April 21st to 25th. This visitation was according to the project agreement “Joint Research and Development Agreement between Institute of Electrical Engineering Chinese Academy of Sciences and IBIDEN Co., Ltd.”.

The project agreement was about to test the heat transfer performance of the honeycomb thermal storage equipment which was developed by IBIDEN Co. Ltd. In order to test the heat transfer performance of honeycomb thermal storage equipment, IEECAS has been set up a high temperature air thermal storage system which is consisted of fan, high temperature furnace, honeycomb thermal storage equipment, flow rate, thermocouple and pressure drop sensor. And use high temperature air, which provided by the high temperature furnace, as heat transfer fluid.

During the visitation, our researchers introduced the high temperature air thermal storage system to Japanese visitors, and tested the charging and discharging performance of the honeycomb thermal storage equipment simply. Through the testing, it can be seen that the heat transfer performance of honeycomb thermal storage equipment was operating good at the time.

Both sides have agreed the honeycomb thermal storage equipment testing plan at the end of the visit, and IEECAS will test the heat transfer performance of the thermal storage on different conditions in the next year.
