|Title:||Computer simulation of the performance of a thermosyphon solar water-heater||Authors:||Lee, WenShiang

|Keywords:||Water heaters;Energy conservation;Solar energy||Issue Date:||1992||Publisher:||Elsevier||Source:||Applied Energy, 1992, Volume 41, Issue 2, Pages 149-163||Abstract:||The instantaneous collector-efficiency has been determined as a function of the time of day and correlated with the thermosyphonic-flow rate of water and the temperature difference between the water at the collector's inlet and outlet. The model was also used to predict the monthly and yearly solar-contribution of the system for two different load profiles. The results of the simulation indicate that the yearly solar contribution of the system for a low-consumption profile is about 89% as compared with 63% for a high consumption pattern.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/7495||ISSN:||03062619||DOI:||http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/0306-2619(92)90042-A||Rights:||© 1992 Elsevier Science||Type:||Article|
