Solar heating and cooling results for the Los Alamos study center

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The solar energy system for the Study Center consists of an 8000 ft/sup 2/ array of selectively coated, single-glazed collectors, a 5000 gallon pressurized tank for hot storage in the cooling mode, and a 10,000 gallon tank, which is used for hot storage in the heating mode and cold storage in the cooling mode. Either of two chillers may be used in series with the cold storage tank, an 85 ton absorption unit, or a 77 ton Rankine cycle unit. Night evaporative cooling is also used to cool the 10,000 gallon tank. A heat recovery unit is used to preheat ... continued below

Description

The solar energy system for the Study Center consists of an 8000 ft/sup 2/ array of selectively coated, single-glazed collectors, a 5000 gallon pressurized tank for hot storage in the cooling mode, and a 10,000 gallon tank, which is used for hot storage in the heating mode and cold storage in the cooling mode. Either of two chillers may be used in series with the cold storage tank, an 85 ton absorption unit, or a 77 ton Rankine cycle unit. Night evaporative cooling is also used to cool the 10,000 gallon tank. A heat recovery unit is used to preheat fresh air in the winter, and, by means of spraying the exhaust air, to pre-cool fresh air in the summer. Daily, monthly, and seasonal energy summaries are presented for the system. Performance data for the two chillers include tabulation of thermal and system coefficients of performance.
