Detailed Design Procedure for Solar Industrial Process Heat Systems: Overview

    Research output: NRELTechnical Report


    A large number of handbooks have been written on the subject of designing solar heating and cooling systems for buildings. Design Approaches for Solar Industrial Process Heat Systems, published in September 1982, addresses the complete spectrum of problems associated with the design of a solar IPH system. This work presents a highly general method, derived from computer simulations, fordetermining actual energy delivered to the process .load. Also covered are siting and selection of subsystem components, cost estimation, safety and environmental considerations, and installation concerns. This paper is intended to give an overview of the design methodology developed and provide some specific examples of technical issues addressed.
