This paper aims to present the control laws that have been used for the Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plant in Dhursar India by Areva Solar. The technology (Linear Fresnel Reflector (LFR), Direct Steam Generation, Once Through) used to produce overheated steam although being the most direct is also the most challenging for the controls. The main control laws which are presented are the flow control and the energy input control. With these control laws, the plant has been able to produce 110MWe.
