Control and Data Collection System for Solar Thermal Collectors

Dominykas Vasarevičius


The paper presents the architecture of the control and statistical data collection system for solar thermal collectors, describing its operating principle and analysis of individual elements, in order to anticipate possible problems and find their solutions. Expanding functionality of the controller of solar thermal collector with online features one can collect data on solar thermal collectors performance in different regions. The paper describes the structure diagram, according to which the system will register operational parameters of the heating system and weather conditions. Data transfer mode, which allows avoiding instant database server load is offered. It is shown, that the simulation of the solar thermal collector operating cycle and optimization of recorded data stream allows over 14 times to reduce the amount of transferred data.
