Investigations on solar thermal process heat integration with parabolic trough collectors

The calculations presented in this paper may serve as a first indicator for planning decisions regarding the orientation of parabolic trough collector fields for latitudes in central Europe. For supplying solar process heat, not only the yearly specific or total energy yields but also the course of direct irradiance and peak power over a day and the distribution over months can help to optimize the cost-benefit ratio of the solar heat plant.
