Solar thermal energy generation needs receiver technologies which can drive highly efficient turbines and decouple the collection of energy from its use by an economic storage technology. High-temperature solid particle receivers for solar tower systems with particle storage are one option. Important issues regarding high-temperature particle receivers are minimization of convective losses, no particle loss due to susceptibility to wind and high efficiency also in part load operation. A design approach facing these challenges is the face-down receiver using recirculation of particles. A screening performance analysis studying different re-circulation patterns is presented. Using smart recirculation schemes, high receiver efficiencies can be main-tained also at part load operation (100%-load ~90%; 50%-load ~86%; 20%-load ~67%). In terms of total annual solar-to-electric efficiencies the face-down geometry yields excellent 24%, although implicating a surround heliostat field. From the analyses, it can be concluded that solid particle receivers using smart recirculation patterns are a viable receiver option for storage and high-temperature high-efficient turbine processes.
