This presentation was created by Andy Walker of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) for use by the San Francisco solar program. It focuses on solar installation safety practices and solar thermal technology, starting on p. 41.
This technical guide provides technical explanations for architects and designers on the preparation and installation of solar thermal systems of the thermosiphon type in single family houses. It provides information and technical criteria needed to choose the most suitable system of solar water heating for single family houses according several technical conditions. It investigates the architectural criteria, technical variables and technical specifications required for the integration of a thermosyphon solar thermal system in a typical domestic hot water installation of a single family house. The document includes a glossary providing explanation on different terms and techniques.
This article, written by engineers from the Universidad Tecnologica de Pereira in Colombia, presents the design process and construction of a solar water heating collector for domestic consumption, operating by thermosiphon.
The processes explained in this article are based on the Colombian technical standards NTC 4368 and the NTC 2461.
The article details the mathematical design, selection of materials and process
