Abstract

A simplified methodology is presented for estimating the solar collector/thermal storage requirements for solar cooling/power generation systems. It is based on synthesizing the system's performance from the performances of its key components, taking into account the thermoeconomic constraints under which each of the components would be competitive with conventional fuel-fired and electric-powered alternatives. The methodology minimizes the use of time-consuming detailed weather data processing while providing a preliminary estimate of the optimum combination of sizes for the solar collectors, thermal storage, and cooling/power generation equipment at a given location. The SOLERAS thermal storage field-test experience in Phoenix, AZ is reviewed.
