Design of thermal power plant modernization & rehabilitation model for the newmarket demands and challenges

ABSTRACT
The article presents the model for the rehabilitation of existing conventional thermal power plants in order to lower the consumption of fossil fuels. Instead of them, the model uses an alternative energy source - sun irradiation. The proposed rehabilitation model is theoretically calculated and designed. The model in the software environment Matlab Simulink was developed, based on previous calculations and determined parameters. In this article, it is presented the combination of Clausius - Rankine process and solar central receiver system. The model enables simultaneous calculations of exit model parameters for the complete model, based on predetermined entering parameters of the model.
