Abstract: This paper describes the results of a simulation study of a forced circulation, solar hybrid residential-cure-water heating system which comprises a corrugated absorber water heater and a rock-bed water-to-air heat exchanger-cure-storage unit integrated to a residential building to be heated. The system has been evaluated without and with the hot water load (which is the standard hot water demand for a typical family of two adults and two children in India) in the residential building. To satisfy the heat demand, no auxiliary energy has been assumed to be supplied to the system. The rate of air flow in the system was observed to influence the system performance most significantly. In addition, the mode of operation, i.e. whether the air flow is continuous or intermittent, influences the system performance greatly, a higher and intermittent air flow rate resulting in a more stable and uniform temperature of the living space.
