Among the discussions are a discrete-time adaptive scheme for temperature control in molten salt solar collectors fields, simulating active solar space heating and domestic hot water preparation in a passive house, the solar air shutter as a new system for space heating, analyses and applications of solar evaporator-collectors, the solar collector and near earth object diversion, the importance and effect of configurational geometry in the design and application of solar collectors and concentrators, and experimental and modelling performance of a solar crop drying system with roof-integrated solar collectors.
That's why the engine air shutter has a SUMMER/WINTER lever.
Superior is also responsible for many other industry firsts including: the first three-sided and see-through fireplaces, as well as the first double-wall chimney system, the first with top or rear flu options for direct-vent models and patented adjustable air shutter.

But the real innovation is behind the front grill where an automatic air shutter system allows the car to change shape and cut through the air more smoothly.
When open, the air shutter provides additional cooling for the engine.
The service agent will perform a comprehensive diagnostic of the product, including a review of the air shutter and burner setting, top burners' ignition, oven burner efficiency, griddle and charbroiler temperatures, oven lights and switch performance, and fit and finish.
