Abstract

A computational performance study of community solar heating systems with seasonal storage in southern Finland (60°N) has been accomplished. Computer simulations are carried out on an hour-by-hour basis and for four types of system configurations. The effect of collector type, storage volume, heat pump and collector area are investigated. The results of the study show that district solar heating systems may provide considerable solar fractions even in strict climatic conditions.
