Abstract

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.
