Abstract: A hybrid power plant including a solar central receiver for receiving solar radiation and converting it to thermal energy. The power plant includes a molten salt heat transfer medium for transferring the thermal energy to heat exchanger. The use of fossil fuels should be reduced in near future due to their limited resources and increasing ecological impacts. Therefore, increased interest and incentives have been created for development of electricity supply utilizing renewable energy such solar energy, which has long-range potential and is applicable in most geographical regions Libya is located in the center of North Africa. The vast majority of the country is located in the Sahara Desert, which is characterized by its high potential for solar energy. This study provides an evaluation study for the solar power plant with a capacity equal to 70 GW/year to support generating electricity. The System Advisor Model (SAM) model system, developed by the National Office of Renewable Energy (NRE), was used to assess the plant’s active and economic performance.
