Abstract

A method is developed for the design and optimization of solar steam systems for constant load applications. Analytic formulae are derived for yearly collectible energy and collector operating time in terms of all important system variables and for all principal solar collector types. Examples are presented to illustrate the simplicity and applicability of the method in sensitivity studies.
