CHESTER WEST

MARCH 1979


I. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

The Chester West site is a single-family residence in Huntsville, Alabama.
Solar energy is used for space heating the home and preheating domestic hot
water (DHW). The solar energy system has an array of flat-plate collectors
with a gross area of 225 square feet. The array faces south at an angle of
49 degrees to the horizontal. A glycerol-water solution is used as the medium
for delivering solar energy from the collector array to storage; water is the
medium for delivering solar energy from storage to the space heating and hot
water loads. Solar energy is stored aboveground in a 500-gallon water storage
tank. Auxiliary space heating is provided by an air-to-air heat pump and
electrical heating elements which are designed to function in parallel with
the solar energy space heating loop. Auxiliary hot water heating is provided
in series with the solar energy hot water heating loop through the use of
electrical heating elements in an 80-gallon DHW tank. The system, shown
schematically in Figure 1, has three modes of solar operation.

Mode 1 Collector-to-Storage: This mode activates when the control system
senses a sufficient temperature difference between the collector and storage
and remains active until the temperature difference drops below the accepted
minimum. The collected energy is transferred to storage through a ring-type,
liquid-to-liquid heat exchanger located in the storage tank. Pump P1 is
operating.

Mode 2 Storage-to-Space Heating: This mode activates when there is a demand
for space heating. Solar energy is circulated to the conditioned space by
solar-heated water from storage through a liquid-to-air heat exchanger located
in the air-distribution duct. Pump P3 is operating.

Mode 3 Storage-to-DHW Tank: This mode activates when the control system
senses a sufficient temperature difference between storage and the DHW tank,
and remains active as long as a sufficient temperature difference exists.
Water circulates from the top of storage through a liquid-to-liquid heat
exchanger located in the bottom of the DHW tank, Pump P2 is operating.


II. PERFORMANCE EVALUATION


INTRODUCTION

The site was occupied during the month of March; however, the solar energy
system was not completely operational during the month. The DHW subsystem was

turned off from March 7 through March 26. A new storage tank was installed on
March 1. A malfunctioning liquid flowmeter in the DHW loop rendered some of
the DHW and storage performance factors invalid. The liquid flowmeter in the
space heating loop also malfunctioned; however, it was possible to analyze all
space heating performance factors by using air rather than liquid flow. Data on
the space heating component indicated a solar fraction of 33 percent, and an
electrical energy savings of 0.33 million Btu.

WEATHER CONDITIONS

During the month, total incident solar energy on the collector array was
9.5 million Btu for a daily average of 1356 Btu per square foot. This was
about the same as the estimated average daily solar radiation for this geogra-
phical area during March of 1347 Btu per square foot for a south-facing plane
with a tilt of 49 degrees to the horizontal. The average ambient temperature
during March was 54F as compared with the long-term average for March of
510F. The number of heating degree-days for the month (based on a 650F
reference) was 330, as compared with the long-term average of 461. The number
of cooling degree-days was 16, as compared with the average of 21.

THERMAL PERFORMANCE

Collector The total incident solar radiation on the collector array for the
month of March was 9.5 million Btu. During the period the collector loop
was operating the total insolation amounted to 8.2 million Btu. The total
collected solar energy for the month of March was 3.7 million Btu, resulting
in a collector array efficiency of 40 percent, based on total incident insola-
tion. There were two instances when the collector loop malfunctioned: 1) It
turned on on March 9, but stayed on continuously until it turned off on
March 11; 2) it turned on on March 21, but ran continuously until midnight.
There were some energy losses during these periods. Operating energy required
by the collector loop was 0.40 million Btu.

Storage The average storage temperature for the month was 1270F.

DHW Load The DHW subsystem consumed an unknown amount of solar energy and
1.2 million Btu of auxiliary electrical energy to satisfy a hot water load of
1.1 million Btu. The DHW subsystem consumed a total of 0.087 million Btu of
operating energy. A daily average of 62 gallons of DHW was consumed at an
average temperature of 1310F delivered from the tank.

Space Heating Load The space heating subsystem consumed 0.73 million Btu of
solar energy and 1.3 million Btu of auxiliary electrical energy to satisfy a
space heating load of 2.2 million Btu. The solar fraction of this load was
33 percent. The space heating subsystem consumed a total of 0.18 million Btu
of operating energy, resulting in an electrical energy savings of 0.33 million
Btu.






OBSERVATIONS


Unreliable liquid flowmeters limited the performance evaluation of this site.
Both flowmeters became fouled with debris from the old storage tank and suffered
a scum buildup attributed to the corrosive reaction of the metals and liquid
in the system.


ENERGY SAVINGS

The space heating subsystem contributed an electrical energy savings of 0.33
million Btu.


III. ACTION STATUS

Boeing is investigating various approaches to solve the liquid flowmeter
problem. The use of filters to purge the system of debris and the use of
additives to impede corrosion are being considered.
