Solar Heating and Cooling of Residential Buildings: Design of Systems.
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins. Solar Energy Applications Lab.
This is the second of two training courses designed to develop the capability of practitioners in the home building industry to design solar heating and cooling systems. The course is organized in 23 modules to separate selected topics and to facilitate learning. Although a compact schedule of one week is shown, a variety of formats can be arranged. In general, the course progresses from simple sizing procedures for making preliminary estimates of collector area requirements, to a computer-aided method, and finally to automated design techniques. Such details as system economics, energy conservation trade-offs, and component selections are also presented. (Author/MLF)
