Predictive energy balance for solar hot water systems
Solar hot water systems necessarily require storage due to a time difference between solar supply and hot water demand. Typically the storage vessel uses an auxiliary heater to maintain a volume of hot water during periods of low insolation. The operation of this heater is controlled by a reactive device called a thermostat. This paper presents an advanced control solution to allow the thermostat to operate with discretion so that less solar energy is displaced by the operation of the auxiliary...[Show more]
