NEW FULL-SCALE SOLAR AND BUILDING ENERGY LABORATORY AT LUND UNIVERSITY

Bülow-Hübe, Helena LU ; Håkansson, Håkan and Perers, Bengt (2005) North Sun 2005 p.1-7
Abstract
Abstract – A new full-scale laboratory has been erected at Lund university in 2004. The main goal of the

laboratory is to find cost-effective solutions which reduce the electricity use in offices and residential

buildings. The facility contains four rooms for testing building components, especially glazing and

shading systems. The roof has a platform for testing solar components and solar systems, both solar

heating and photovoltaic systems. The four test rooms are placed in a climatic chamber, a guard ,which is

temperature controlled. The rooms are constructed of homogeneous insulated sandwich panels with low

thermal mass and no thermal bridges and have removable façades towards south.... (More)

thermal mass and no thermal bridges and have removable façades towards south. The rooms are

identically two and two: One pair is designed for studies of visual and thermal comfort and have modern

office ventilation and lighting systems. The other room pair is designed for detailed studies of the energy

performance of i.e. solar shading systems. The heating system of the laboratory is based on a combination

of a ground source heat pump and solar thermal collectors. Both high temperature and low temperature

solar collectors can be connected to the system to produce hot water or recharge the ground source

borehole. Separate collector test loops will also be installed for investigation of solar thermal and hybrid

PV-T collectors. Operating temperatures from below the dew point of the air to high temperatures (90°C)

can be simulated in these systems. A building automation system together with a traditional logger system

will be used for both long-term and short-term monitoring. (Less)
