A solar PVT DHW system studied in DK

Posted: 2020-01-29

The performance of the system was assessed using selected key performance indicators. A parametric analysis was performed identifying component sizes that improved the system’s performance. The improved system produced 55% more electricity, had 23% lower electric consumption and wasted 11% less heat by minimizing heat losses compared to the demonstration system. The improved system had a solar thermal fraction of 0.58, a solar electrical fraction of 1.51 and a renewable energy fraction of 0.75.

Our Danish participants in Task 60 have published an interesting paper on simulaitons of a new DHW system with PVT and a heat pump. Discover the results here:
