dc.description.abstractA growing demand for emerging alternative energy technologies is fueled by rising energy prices and decreasing energy supplies. Domestic hot water heating is an industry that continues to benefit from increased research in and improvement of solar technology. This thesis outlines the implementation of a solar domestic water heating simulator and the validation of a double and single tank domestic hot water configuration. The results and procedures were compared to the guidelines of the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation’s (SRCC) OG-300 standards. The Solar Energy Factor for a double-tank system was found to be 2.64 ±0.043 and for a single tank system 4.46 ±0.06, which is 12 % and 9 % respectively, below data reported by the SRCC for a comparable test. These tests will verify the performance of this solar water heating system and provide a baseline profile for further modifications to improve the efficiency of future solar domestic hot water heating systems.en
