An Optimization Formulation for Solar Heating-Systems
Abbreviated Journal Title
A mathematical correlation between collector area and auxiliary energy used in a solar hot water system was obtained by using TRNSYS program. Based on this correlation, optimum collector area was directly related to both economic factors and system parameters. A criteria for economic feasibility was obtained. A comparison of optimum area calculated by this analysis with optimum area based on f-chart data was in good agreement.
