A solar PVT DHW system studied in DK
The performance of the system was assessed using selected key performance indicators. A parametric analysis was performed identifying component sizes that improved the system’s performance. The improved system produced 55% more electricity, had 23% lower electric consumption and wasted 11% less heat by minimizing heat losses compared to the demonstration system. The improved system had a solar thermal fraction of 0.58, a solar electrical fraction of 1.51 and a renewable energy fraction of 0.75.
