    This paper describes the design and implementation of two-layer hierarchical control strategies for a distributed solar collector field, as well as representative experimental results in which the benefits of using this approach compared to current operations are highlighted. The upper layer of the hierarchical strategy was implemented using two different approaches, fuzzy logic and physical model-based optimization. Both calculate the optimal plant operating point automatically, taking operating constraints into account while maximizing profit from selling the electricity generated. The lower layer uses as setpoint the output generated by the upper layer to automatically track the operating point despite any disturbances affecting the plant.
