This research is aimed to study the system performance for a large solar hot water system constructed by connecting a series of small domestic natural-circulation systems. This type of large solar hot water system has been recently installed in Taiwan without either practical or theoretical support. There are few studies on this type of large solar hot water system available. This paper presents the numerical simulation study for the control and the system operating parameters effects on the system performance to provide important information both for users and system designers.
