- The operation of the solar process hot water system since installation on June 15, 1978 is discussed, including a number of technical problems with the system and with the data acquisition system. Testing and inspection routines are briefly described. The data acquisition system is described, and some performance data are given, particularly for the collectors. Thermal efficiencies are found to be significantly below the predicted values. Two typical collectors selected at random were removed and shipped to General Electric Valley Forge for detailed testing of individual collector performance and quantification of line losses. (LEW)
