The Australian National University (ANU) has installed a 300m2 Photovoltaic-Thermal (PV-T) concentrator system in a four-story building. The building is provided with eight CHAPS collectors, 6000 liters of hot water storage, hydronic in-slab floor heating, gas fired boosters and a 40kW inverter. A CHAPS collector is a 38X, one axis tracking PV concentrator that is 24 meters long. Heat is removed from the solar cells using a fluid, which is then passed through a heat exchanger to provide heat to...[Show more]
