Integrating Large SHC Systems into DHC Networks

Release of a MATLAB Toolbox to calculate pressure loss coefficients (zeta values) for T-pieces at low Reynolds numbers

Posted: 2017-06-07

One of the key aspects in the design of large solar thermal plants is the hydraulic layout of the collectors and collector arrays. This recently released MATLAB Toolbox can be integrated in a hydraulic tool to
calculate the flow distribution and pressure loss behavior of T-pieces under boundary conditions that are relevant for solar thermal installations.
