Lugano active run period 3 recalculation if temperatures where inflated.
The attached spreadsheet contains a recalculation of the Lugano active run period 3 if the temperatures where inflated due to using broadband instead of in-band emissivities on the Optris thermal camera.
The recalculation assumes that a factor of 2/3 was already included in the reported rod powers.
However since it was not expliciy stated that the Lugano testers applied this factor 2/3, the sub page for the rod powers in the spreadsheet also includes the calculation for the case that the factor 2/3 was not applied.
Note also that since the calculations are based on average temperatures, the results must be interpreted as approximate values.
The recalculation with the established lower temperatures results in a total convective and radiated power of 1102 Watt assuming the factor of 2/3 was applied to the reported rod powers.
If the factor of 2/3 was not applied to the rod powers the total calculated power would have been 1042 Watt
The total applied electrical power for this run was 755 Watt.
