Performance measurement of solar collectors

Outdoor test-bench with LAUDA heating and cooling system

During the power measurement on concentrating collectors, in particular, the angle of incidence of the sun plays a significant role. In order to be able to precisely calculate such systems exact tracking of the test object is necessary with respect to the solar position. To cater for the most varied demands on the measurement of all collector designs, a outdoor test bench was developed for performance measurement. LAUDA produced and delivered the heating and cooling system for this application - a heat transfer system.
