DEVELOPMENT OF STANDARD TEST PROCEDURES FOR DETERMINATION OF LONG TERM THERMAL PERFORMANCE OF SOLAR DOMESTIC HOT WATER SYSTEMS
The paper gives an overview of the activity on SDHW system testing, carried out in the European collector and system testing group (CSTG), which is a concerted action managed by the Joint Research Centre. The ultimate goal of a testing procedure for the thermal characterization of a Solar Domestic Hot Water System is to give an estimation of the energy savings in normal user conditions at a given location. The paper gives the criteria and objectives for a test method, as decided in the CSTG, and describes the different approaches, with a discussion of the problems which are investigated, such as, load, auxiliary heater, controller, etc. The paper also gives a description of a common test procedure which will be further investigated and validated.
