Conclusion: Summary and Future Perspectives

A complete research and testing laboratory for scientific research in the field of solar energy utilization was built near Tripoli, Libya, for the CSES of the National Office for Research and Development by the general contractor, Bavaria Engineering GmbH, together with several project partners. TUV Rheinland Immissionsschutz und Energiesysteme GmbH, which recommended PSE AG as provider of the indoor/outdoor test stand for solar thermal collector testing, was project partner especially for the solar thermal test systems.

This paper describes the concept and realization of the test stand for solar thermal collectors. PSE AG and Fraunhofer ISE were able to use their years of experience with indoor and outdoor test stands and to develop the technology further.

PSE AG’s next project consists of the installation of a complete indoor test stand for solar thermal collectors at the French national institute for solar energy, INES, in the fall of 2008.

Numerous innovations will also be realized in this test stand. Besides motor-driven lamp positioning, all test-stand-specific parameters will be centrally controlled and recorded so that tests can be easily documented and reproduced.

We are glad to be able to use our expertise for the realization of test stands for solar thermal collectors.
