Abstract

This report deals with the first operational phase of the Solar Pilot Test Facility under contract number ESA-T-006-EIR-(B) between the Institute for Industrial Research and Standards and the Commission of the European Communities. This phase is a continuation of the original contract concerning the design and construction of the Solar Pilot Test Facility. A general description of the Solar Pilot Test Facility project and details of all facilities in the various participating countries is given. The programme of action during the first operational heating season 1980 - 1981 is given, together with details from progress reports of the sequences applying to the two systems comprising the facility + the reference system (Solar System One) and the national system (Solar System Two). Included are details of the system configurations used, the operational problems and data exchange problems experienced, conclusions on system behaviour studies, and further work to be undertaken for model improvement. Other work undertaken, such as measurement of installation characteristics, and load analysis, of general interest to the Solar Pilot Test Facility Group, is also described.
