Instructional software for explaining the principles of solar energy heating
The SOLAR CYCLE TRAINER is used to explain the principles of solar energy heating. There are many variations that can occur in a solar space heating/domestic hot water system. Fluid flow can be routed in numerous ways to use the sun's energy directly for heating, storing it to be used at a later date, using the hot water from storage for space heating and domestic water heating and ridding the system of excess heat. By simulating flow patterns with graphics animation, based on sunny or cloudy day, storage tank temperature, outdoor temperature and hot water use, the principles behind solar energy heat can be understood.
