This presentation was created by Kurt Koegel of Solar Skies Manufacturing. It provides background information on solar thermal systems and offers a 10 step program to use for solar thermal system design.
The 10 steps offered in the presentation are meant to apply to drainback systems for commercial installations. The presentation also suggests that some installers may wish to utilize energy modeling programs for their systems, which can accurately predict performance and weather conditions. The ten steps are each explained in turn, and focus on necessary solar thermal elements such as heating loads, collectors, and storage.
