This presentation was given by Professor Ursula Eicker (University of Applied Sciences, Stuttgart) at Intersolar 2012. It reports on the simulations studies undertaken by the University to compare the energy performance and costs of solar thermal, PV and conventional cooling. Several case studies are referenced, including test installations in Germany, Spain, Cyprus and Egypt.
This technical report is a deliverable of Task 38, Subtask C within the framework of the International Energy Agency’s Solar Heating and Cooling Programme. It describes both existing and developing simulation tools and models used for solar cooling applications.
This thesis from 2009 describes the design and testing of a solar thermal collector simulator. The main objective of this study is to assist research and development of future projects that incorporate a small solar collector array. An in-depth description is provided covering both the hardware and software needed to control the power output and the status of the simulator.
