Speaker: Ricardo Conceição
Presentation on particle deposition, soiling, one of the main factors responsible for lowering solar power plants’ optical performance, namely photovoltaic and concentrating solar power technologies.
Short Bio. Ricardo Conceição is postdoctoral researcher in the R&D Unit of High Temperature Processes since May 2020. Here his research mainly focuses on soiling in solar energy conversion technologies, covering different aspects such as soiling assessment and forecasting, dust characterization as well as monitoring techniques. Ricardo contributes also on solar forecasting and solar resource modelling.
