Transient performance analysis of integral collector storage solar water heating systems
"Solar domestic water heating systems have shown performances capable of relieving a portion of the significant energy requirements for the nation's domestic hot water production. High initial costs of traditional solar domestic water heating systems have prompted the study of integral collector storage (ICS) solar water heaters as a low cost alternative. The focus of the present work has been on means for passively controlling the inherent transients in the storage volume and in order to improve system performance during the energy discharge process"--Abstract, leaf iv.
