Long-Term Monitoring of Small Pellet Boiler Based Heating Systems in Domestic Applications

C. Schraube, T. Jung, J.-Y. Wilmotte, C. Mabilat & F. Castagno
Small pellet boilers (P < 70 kW) are considered as an established and widely spread technology for the heating of private dwellings and small commercial buildings. They are characterised by high thermal efficiency and are well suited for combination with solar collector systems. The performance of such dual heat source systems is however highly depending on the hydraulic scheme and the controlling strategy. For getting a better view on the parameters, which influence the performance...
