Innovative technique saves electricity
Solar cooling is an innovative technology that uses hot water produced by solar collectors to produce cooled water or air conditioning.
The cold so produced is used in buildings as a means of conditioning environments or industries as a means of conservation or thermal stabilization.
The application of this technique saves electricity as the power provided to refrigeration machines to generate the cold is thermal type driven by the hot water produced by the solar panels.
The Solar Cooling plant realized by Assing as well as producing chilled water for the summer cooling of an agricultural greenhouse, is used by researchers to study and improve the performance of the technique in different configurations.
Thanks to a dedicated SW interface the researchers can remotely change the various control system parameters and then verify the results and the performance achieved by systematically recording the most significant data.
This installation confirms the versatility of the Assing Test stands which are used successfully in fields also seemingly far from traditional machine, engine, and plant testing activities with a know-how transfer from one sector to another.
