Modeling of solar water heating with horizontal storage tank

Hi,

The storage tank position is vertical in the solar water heating model. In some solar heater types like flat plate, the collector is coupled with the storage tank positioned horizontally. How can we model these types of systems in SAM?

Kind regards,
Ibrahim

Dear Ibrahim,

SAM models the tank as a cylinder with its base parallel to the ground. It is not possible to model a horizontal tank.

Best regards,
Paul.
