Solar collector array and weather station

Facility managerDr Mike Dennis
Solar collector array

Solar heat may be collected using flat plate or evacuated tube collector arrays of up to 20 m2 gross area. Controlled temperatures of up to 120°C may be generated by the array. Heat may be exchanged into an external circuit through a plate heat exchanger. The array is accompanied by a weather station measuring global horizontal radiation, direct beam radiation, the solar spectrum, ambient temperature, wind speed, wind direction and rainfall. Weather data is logged continuously.
