Optimizing Solar Thermal Performance with Data loggers (2009)

Submitted by Dan Fernandez on April 26, 2012

This white paper from Onset Computer Corporation explains how consumers, engineers, installers and technicians can take advantage of data loggers to make sure their solar thermal systems are running at peak performance.

Solar thermal systems use the power of the sun to directly heat water and the air. In previous times when solar thermal was popular, it was not delivering the full potential of payback because systems were either installed improperly or were not functioning well. With a portable data logger, the temperature in the storage tank, current in the back-up water heater, and current in the solar pump can all be measured to ensure the system is functioning at peak capacity.
