Analysis of a Closed Loop Solar Energy System Using the -f Chart Method: Effect of Different Brazilian Locations (2013)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on January 6, 2015

This study, conducted by Alexandre M.S. Costa of the State University of Maringá and published by the State University of Ponta Grossa in Brazil, analyzes the annual energy performance of a closed-loop hot water solar thermal system under various weather conditions in 6 Brazilian cities (Curitiba, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Recife, Salvador and Brasília) using the -f chart method. This method is based on 2 different approaches. It calculates the fraction (f) of monthly heat load that comes from solar energy.
