Description

Results from the first year of operation of the solar ground coupling research facility at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) are presented. Nine experiments which are first generation ground coupled heat transfer and storage devices for a solar source heat pump system have been operated since December 1978. A computer program called GROCS which models the heat transfer between these devices and the earth has been written (and subsequently integrated with the solar energy system simulation program TRNSYS by John W. Andrews). In this paper the ground coupling research program, the first generation experiments, and the underground heat flow model GROCS ... continued below
