Paper Title:
A Study on the Demonstration Experiment of the Solar Hot Water Heater for Dwellings
  Abstract

The main purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the performance of the solar hot water heater for dwellings in a long period of time. In order to evaluate the performance, there were 11 solar hot water heaters located in Gwangju Chosun University examined for their performance in 30 month period as a long term. The specific monitoring systems of each heater were constructed for the demonstrational research and the data base associated to each monitoring systems were assembled for an extensive analysis for variety of data obtained. The demonstrational experiments were conducted through following the routine procedures of 4 specific tests (the replicated drainage test, the daily drain test, the daily agitation test, the short-term test). The performance evaluation was based on the performances in insulating and solar collecting and the experimental routines and the performance experiments had incorporated the consumers’ use and need of the product. The ultimate goals of this investigation were to achieve consumers’ trust on the products and to promote the extensive distributions of the solar hot water heaters. The demonstrational research of this investigation was to evaluate the performance of the solar hot water heater for the residents for a long period of time. This research will be continued extensively.
