Nontracking solar collection technologies for solar heating and cooling systems

S.A. Kalogirou     Cyprus University of Technology, Limassol, Cyprus

Abstract

This chapter presents a review of nontracking solar thermal collectors. These collectors are suitable for low to medium temperature applications with a maximum of about 150°C. This range of temperatures is particularly suitable for solar heating and cooling applications. Usually these collectors collect both direct and diffuse solar radiation, so they are very effective collection devices. For this purpose there is no requirement to follow the sun trajectory during the day so they belong to the nontracking collectors. Some of the types presented may require seasonal tracking, ie, changing ...
