Universal daily input/output diagrams for thermal solar collection subsystems : part 2

Published in International journal of solar energy. 1990, vol. 8, p. 203-219
Abstract Part 1 was published in Int. J. of Solar Energy, 8, (3), 1990 Input/output diagrams are very useful for evaluating the daily performances of solar collectors. We present a simple and accurate method to generate such diagrams for solar collection subsystems. The introduction of new dimensionless variables leads to a simplified and universal expression of I/O diagrams. The performances of the entire solar systems can then be evaluated by combining I/O diagrams to day by day simulations, which is very helpful in order to check existing installations or for design purposes. All these procedures are based on and validated by experiments, measurements and studies performed over many years. Now that we have described the main characteristics of a solar collection subsystem we are going to focus only on the solar collection subsystem as a whole, in order to analyse and evaluate by means of the G3-Model, its daily performances.
