Experimental testing

The schematic diagram of the laboratory installation and its photo are shown in Figs. 2 and 3. The warm and cold work vessels are made of cylinders and mounted one above another. The diameter and the height of the cylinders are 110 mm and 140 mm, respectively. Both cylinders are transparent and made of Plexiglas […]

Design of Hot Water Heating System for Low-rise Apartment House

S. Kaneko1* , M. Udagawa1 and T. Kusunoki1 1 Kogakuin University, 1-24-2 Nishi-Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, 163-8677, JAPAN* Corresponding Author, dm07014@ns. kogakuin. ac. jp Abstract Total performance of solar hot water heating(DHW) system for an apartment house of 10 housing units was examined using the detailed simulation with EESLISM [4]. The simulation was carried out to […]

The new solar combisystem concept

The complete solar combisystem consists of two units, the “Technical Unit” and the “Solar Store Unit” (see Fig 1 and Fig. 2). In the technical unit all components like boiler, pumps, mixing valve, switching valves, heat exchangers, hot water preparation unit, expansion vessels, etc. are pre-installed. The main difference of this concept compared to existing […]

Rise in energy prices

The simulations of the base case were calculated with a comparably small rise in energy prices of 1.3 %/a for natural gas and 0.3 %/a over 20 years for electricity [6]. However the current development of prices in Germany amounts to 9.7 %/a (non inflation-adjusted) over the last seven years [7] which indicates a higher […]
