Course EG3007

Solar Thermal

7.5 Credits
Second Cycle

Starts week 45, 2021

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • analyze and discuss the physical processes that determine the output of a solar thermal collector, and relate this to mathematical models that can be used to calculate this output
  • calculate the optical parameters of absorbers, reflectors and transparent materials as well as compare their characteristics
  • describe and evaluate different thermal loads and be able to estimate them using mathematical models
  • describe the design of different solar thermal systems and compare their suitability for different boundary conditions
  • calculate the storage capacity for different heat storage techniques and determine their suitability for given boundary conditions
  • analyze and explain the functioning of different designs of solar cookers, stoves, cooling systems, desalination methods and dryers
