Field Monitoring of Solar Domestic Hot Water Systems Based On Simple Tank Temperature (1995)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 13, 2015

This report was a joint effort from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Sacramento Municipal Utility District, prepared for the American Solar Energy Society at the Solar 1995 Conference. This report has equations to use to calculate solar loop gain and tank losses. Analysis is based upon the tank energy balance – identifying solar gain during the day and tank losses at night. These gains and losses can be compared to expectations based upon prior knowledge and estimated weather conditions.
