Low Cost, High Performance Solar Air-Heating Systems Using Perforated Absorbers

September 1999
Edited by Alfred P. Brunger, Bodycote ORTECH Inc., Canada
This report provides descriptions of and performance data for seven demonstration projects in Europe, North America and the Pacific Rim. It also describes two software tools, UTCFLOW and SIMIAIRT, which engineers can use to aid in the design of such systems. The intended audience includes designers and prospective purchasers and operators of solar air-heating systems using perforated absorbers.

Dynamic Testing of Active Solar Heating Systems (Volumes A & B)

April 1997
Edited by H. Visser, TNO Building and Construction Research, Netherlands and T. Pauschinger, University of Stuttgart, Germany
Volume A describes the combined dynamic testing of components and system simulation for small solar heating systems as well as in situ measurements of large solar heating systems. Volume B presents the work on dynamic testing of solar DHW systems. Both volumes contain summaries of the work carried out followed by a collection of papers contributed by Task experts describing the experiences with dynamic testing and measuring in more detail.

Task 14 was initiated to advance the state-of-the-art in active solar energy systems. Many features developed during the few years before the start of the Task, when used alone or in combination, had the potential to significantly improve the performance of these systems. It was the objective of Task 14 to analyze, design, evaluate and, in some cases, construct and monitor a number of different systems incorporating one or more of these features.

Task 14 was initiated to advance the state-of-the-art in active solar energy systems. Many features developed during the few years before the start of the Task, when used alone or in combination, had the potential to significantly improve the performance of these systems. It was the objective of Task 14 to analyze, design, evaluate and, in some cases, construct and monitor a number of different systems incorporating one or more of these features. The large systems working group within the Task examined large scale heating systems involving temperatures under 200C. Five large systems were studied. This report covers three of those systems. Two other projects, Solar desalination in Spain, and an Industrial process heat project in Switzerland, are reported separately.
