In this paper a cloud detection system for the operation of solar power tower plants is shown. The presence of clouds is detected at a region next to the sun, which is fundamental in order to preserve the integrity of the solar central receiver, which is located at the top of the tower of these solar plants. This system prevents the rupture of the receiver by thermal stress.
