Solar Heating and Cooling Experiment for a School in Atlanta. Performance Report.
Westinghouse Electric Corp., Falls Church, VA.
This report documents the performance and conclusions of a 13-month period of monitoring the performance of the experimental solar heating and cooling system installed in the George A. Towns Elementary School, Atlanta, Georgia. The objectives of the project were to (1) make a significant contribution to solar design, technology, and acceptability; (2) conduct an advanced experiment on an integrated large-scale solar heating and cooling system, determine its performance, reliability and maintainability, and compare these actual results with predicted performance; (3) identify subsystem interface problems that cannot adequately be predicted by theoretical analysis; (4) operationally test major components and identify improvements required; and (5) identify cost-reducing materials and techniques that may improve the economic viability of solar heating and cooling systems.
