The seasonal solar heat storage
system are an essential element of solar systems designed for heating.
The system takes water from near the bottom of a solar heat storage
tank and pumps it through a collector--where it's heated by the sun--and then back to the tank.
The building includes a massive wall running through the building east to west for passive solar heat storage
. The design includes an active in-floor radiant heat system that also includes massive storage of a one-foot-deep sand bed under the concrete floor of the building.
Work on the project, which has taken three years to develop, is expected to start this year and when completed in 1999 the "super-terraces" will include a range of green technologies including solar heat storage
and water recycling.
In this work, an experimental study was conducted to evaluate the effect of the solar heat storage
unit (solar air collector with PCM) in the solar dryer climatic conditions at Salem, Tamil Nadu, India.
