The collector types considered are the flat plate, compound parabolic and evacuated tube collectors. The optimisation is based on an energy benefit analysis, i.e., the amount of useful energy collected against the life cycle cost of the solar system. The system is modelled with the TRNSYS computer program using data for a typical meteorological year (TMY) for a hot climate (Nicosia, Cyprus) and a typical house with a total floor area of 196 m2. The results indicate that for the present application the compound parabolic collector is the most cost effective whereas the optimum collector area is 15 m2, the optimum slope of the collector is 30° and the storage tank size is 600 lt.||Description:||This paper is published in the World Renewable Energy Congress VII, Cologne, Germany.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/875|
