Abstract

This Round Robin Test Series was performed as part of a collaborative programme coordinated by the Commission of the European Communities to assess and develop methods of testing solar collectors in the European climate. Eighteen laboratories, representing nine E.C. countries have undertaken thermal performance tests on the Philips evacuated tubular collector. These results have been analyzed and presented individually for each laboratory and also collectively. As part of the analysis, the measured data has been adjusted to allow for environmental differences in test conditions. Conclusions have been drawn which will form the basis for recommendations on testing evacuated tubular collectors to be included in the 2nd Edition of the "CEC Recommendations for European Solar Collector Test Methods" (due for publication later in 1983).
