Abstract

In the present work the unsteady numerical simulation of a solar domestic hot water (DHW) system composed of two flat plate collectors, a water tank for heat storage, and a coil heat exchanger is addressed. The simulations have been performed using two different solvers, namely a home-made code written in Matlab, and TRNSYS 17. In the first part of the paper, the analytical models used in the Matlab code, and the TRNSYS case are reported in detail. Successively, the results of the simulations realized by means of the two solvers are presented and compared. © 2014 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
