BISTS Classification and Characterisation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Building Integrated Solar Thermal Systems (BISTS) have been classified across a range of operating characteristics and system features and mounting configurations. The main classification criteria of all solar thermal systems (STS) are based on the method of transferring collected solar energy to the application (active or passive), the energy carrier (air, water, water-glycol, oil, electricity etc.) and the final application for the energy collected (hot water and/or space heating, cooling, process heat or mixed applications). Additionally, for BISTS the architectural integration quality based on structural, functional and aesthetical variations have to be classified. The collector as a central element of integration has to fulfil in some cases many more specifications than ordinary, add-on collectors.
