This paper analyses the performances of a Dish-Stirling concentrating solar system using a Stirling engine for the production of electrical and thermal energy. In particular, with focus on the receiver, its performance was evaluated considering two different plant solutions: “naked” receiver (without hot chamber) and receiver provided with hot chamber.The Dish-Stirling system under study includes a MICROGEN linear piston Stirling engine of 4 kW total rated power (3 kW thermal and 1 kW electric). The minimum engine starting temperature is 190 °C, while the maximum operating temperature is 565 °C. The analysis is developed through the setting up of a calculation model in MatLab, through which it is possible to predict the dynamic behaviour of the concentrator-receiver-Stirling engine system and quantify the energy productivity in various operating conditions. The simulations results show that the use of a hot chamber allows improvement of the system performance which, as regards the thermal power, is quantified in an increase of over 70%.
