2 © DualSun – 2015 – Thermal performance study of DualSun installations by Transénergie 2 Objective of the study Project definition: Study realized over 9 months (April – December 2014) by the engineering firm Transénergie, specialized in renewable energies and energy management for more than 22 years.Transénergie Objective of the study: Mesure the temperature of the DualSun panels, as well as the solar energy provided for the domestic hot water. The study is specifically focused on thermal production. Method used: Monitoring system installed by Transénergie, installation realized by professional installers, analysis by Transénergie.

DualSys also provides a personalized report that can later on be used to compare measured results of the installation (via an adapted monitoring system). The DualSys platform

For more information, a detailed description of this installation is available on our website.website

The measured results are very close to DualSys estimations (3.5% error). The major gap in July is explained by a particularly cold and rainy summer 2014 in France. Installation 1: Solar coverage Measured

14 © DualSun – 2015 – Thermal performance study of DualSun installations by Transénergie 14 How to calculate the energy provided by the panels and by the booster. Solar = A * Débit * (T3-T1) Booster = A * Débit * (T4-T3) The constant A is the Cp (Capacité calorifique de l'eau) x volumic mass x le pas de temps d'acquisition du débitmètre / Solar coverage = Solar / (Solar + Booster) 1’ ’ T2 T3 T1 T4 Débit Solar regulatio n T1 is the temperature of the water source (cold) of the tank that then passes to the DualSun panels. T2 is the temperature of the water at the output of the DualSun panels. T3 is the temperature of the water at the output of the tank, exclusively heated by the solar panels. T4 is the temperature of the water at the output of the boiler. Le débitmètre mesure le débit de consommation d’eau. All material used is from the RESOL brand.
