Experimental Research of an Active Solar Heating System
MetadataShow full item record
: Solar is an abundant renewable energy, which is used more and more frequently with the emphasis on environment protection, especially in building heating. The different devised methods between an active solar heating system and normal heating system are discussed in this paper. Based on the design, construction, testing and economic analysis of a demonstration project with the solar heating system, this paper discusses how to connect the solar energy collector with the electricity heater and heating system in order to achieve the best state of comfort and energy savings. The real cost of running is calculated and compared with that of other heating methods. The traits and the scope of applications of the solar heating system and the problems in designing, installing and operating are indicated in this paper.
