Residential Passive Solar Heating and Cooling System and Control
A design was created to provide a novel passive control that operates a passive solar heating and cooling system for residential homes in Wyoming. Mathematical models were developed to determine the pertinent parameters of a control that will allow air to flow in or out of a house for heating or cooling purposes. The control was designed to be implemented in existing passive solar collector systems. It is composed of bimetallic spiral coils, ideally made of ASTM B388 TM2 – an alloy composed of 72% manganese, 18% copper, and 10% nickel for the high expansion component while the low expansion ...
