This paper discusses the deployment of a wireless network to monitor and control a Solar Tower Power Plant, taking into account its unique characteristics like clustering or antenna orientation. An software tool is presented, with inputs based on real or estimated plant layouts and tunable network parameters. A set of solutions for cluster head location and node power output is proposed and results are exported to WSN simulators. In addition, experimental results obtained from the deployment of a wireless network based on IEEE 802.15.4 in a real power plant are presented.
