  1. 1. Calculation and Measurement Methods for the Performance of Solar Collectors. Models of Flat Plate Collectors, Transparent Insulation and Efficiency Factors

    Author : Bengt Hellström; Energi och ByggnadsDesign; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Transparent insulation; Test method; Calculation method; Concentrating collector; Efficiency factor; Fin efficiency; Flat plate collector; Heat conductivity; Honeycomb; Measurement method; Performance; Solar transmittance; Solar collector; Collector model; Energy research; Energiforskning;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with models of flat plate collectors, transparent insulation and efficiency factors. An equation for the energy output from a glazed flat plate collector is derived by modelling the collector efficiency factor, F´ as the sum of a constant and a temperature dependent part. READ MORE

    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Solar Energy; Photovoltaic-Thermal PVT ; Concentration; Collector Testing; Silicon Cell Encapsulation; Ray Tracing; Market Survey; String Layout; Prototype Collectors; Solenergi; Fotovoltaisk-termisk PVT ; Koncentration; Solfångarprovning; Inkapsling av kiselceller; Strålgångsberäkning; Marknadsundersökning; Strängdesign; Solfångarprototyper;

    Abstract : Fossil fuels have greatly improved human living standards and saved countless lives. However, today, their continued use threatens human survival, as CO2 levels rise at an unprecedented pace to levels never seen during human existenceon earth. READ MORE

  4. 4. Retrofitted Solar Domestic Hot Water System for Single-Family Electrically-Heated Houses: Development and testing

    Author : Ricardo Bernardo; Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Solar domestic hot water; retrofitting; single family electrically heated houses; high solar fraction; photovoltaic thermal concentrating hybrids; PVT; parabolic reflectors; CPC thermal collector.;

    Abstract : In Sweden, there are roughly half a million single family houses that use electric heating for both domestic hot water production and space heating. Since electricity is the most expensive energy source in Sweden, it is interesting to install a high solar fraction solar thermal system to reduce the energy use in these houses. READ MORE

  5. 5. Optical Characterization of Solar Collectors form Outdoor Measurements

    Author : Anna Helgesson; Energi och ByggnadsDesign; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Due to high installation costs and relatively low output, the active use of solar energy is limited. The output from a collector can be improved e.g. by using a selective absorber, AR-treated cover glass or transparent insulation. READ MORE
