Overall System Performance Modeling: Solar thermal Cooling/Heating of the IW (2006)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on February 8, 2010

The Advanced Building Systems Integration Consortium (ABSIC) is an industry-university partnership aimed at researching on possibilities to improve building and systems' efficiency.

This presentation goes through a specific project with a twofold objective: design a more efficient solar thermal system and improve the efficiency of existing systems, based on a given building heating and cooling demands.

Results showed that the performance of the systems can be improved up to 27% in winter (around 3MWh) and 49.2% in summer (around 7MWh).
