Abstract

•A detailed dynamic model of a parabolic trough solar thermal power plant is done.•Simulated results are compared to the experimental data from the real power plant.•Discrepancy between model result and real data is caused by operation strategy.•The model strategy increased the operating hours of power plant by around 2.5–3 h.
