Abstract

This book provides a comprehensive review of the most relevant ways and means for collector testing; it is based on eight years of extensive work under the European Communities' Solar Energy R&D Programme. In a concerted action with 20 laboratories across Europe, the Commission of the European Communities conducted a series of test runs on common collector types for this purpose. On this basis the recommendations contained in this book were compiled. In the course of the programme, an impressive record of experience was accumulated which made it possible to draw up some general guidelines for collector design. They are also presented as a separate part of this book. The book is intended as a reference book for designers, producers and appliers of solar energy conversion systems. It is also expected its recommendations will be considered by the international committees who have competence for establishing standards in this field.
