Abstract

A LOW TEMPERATURE SOLAR COLLECTOR PLANT FOR AN OUTDOOR SWIMMING POOL IN ALBERTSLUND MUNICIPALITY AT COPENHAGEN WAS CONSTRUCTED AS AN UNGLAZED, NON-INSULATED POLYOLEFIN SOLAR COLLECTOR WITH DIRECT CIRCULATION OF THE POOL WATER. THE PLANT HAS COMPREHENSIVE EQUIPMENT FOR MEASURING TEMPERATURES AND ENERGY FLOW. DATA IS AUTOMATICALLY COMPILED AND PROCESSED IN A CENTRAL CONTROL AND MONITORING SYSTEM. THE REPORT GIVES OUTPUT AND EFFICIENCY FIGURES AS WELL AS COST AND PROFIT AS COMPARED WITH ESTIMATED FIGURES. THE ENERGY YIELD HAS NOT REACHED EXPECTATIONS BECAUSE OF : OPERATIONAL MALFUNCTIONS, DIRT ACCUMULATING ON THE ABSORBER AND A HIGHER OPERATION TEMPERATURE THAN THE APPLIED DESIGN CRITERION.
