THE GERMAN SOLAR PILOT TEST FACILITY - CONSTRUCTION AND PERFORMANCE OF SOLAR SYSTEMS
This report describes the results of the work carried out for the Commission of the European Communities during the heating seasons, 80/81, 81/82 and 82/83 by the German participant of the Solar Pilot Test Facility Group under research contract no. 610-78-3 ESD. The final aim of this concerted action is twofold: to produce experimental data for model validation and model improvement and to carry out system studies. This report gives full information about all stages of our work: construction of solar pilot test facility, trials and validation, mastering the use of the test facilities, operation sequences, system behaviour studies and collection of validation data for the modelling group to meet the objective of model improvement. By working as a coordinated group the participating countries were able to provide us with data about system failures so that a reliability study could be carried out. A start has been made in the development of a methodology for data analysis for system studies. A number of experimental sensitivity studies have been carried out.
