Thermodynamic Panels are capable of capturing the heat from the environment (the sun, the air or even the rain) 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The heat then is transferred to a special liquid inside the panels and
Offers a very high efficiency (comparing with other renewable systems), not being reliant on the presence of the sun, so can continue to produce energy all day round, even in temperatures as los as -15ºC.
How it works?
Inside the panels circulates a refrigerant fluid which has many times more capacity to absorb heat than conventional water-filled solar panles.
This fluid absorb the heat from the sun, the wind , the rain or even the snow, working 24 hours (even at night)
Thus the efficiency is nearly the 400%, using just one unit of electricity every 4 units of heat produced.
Conventional solar heating systems circulate water through glass panels to collect heat from the sun. These systems are inefficient at low temperatures and do not work at all during hours of darkness.
The Thermodynamic system is different, being capable of taking energy from the atmosphere at temperatures as low as -15ºC by utilising a refrigerant gas and reverse refrigeration technology.
- The refrigerant fluid at low-temperature (which may be below 0 ° C) circulates through the thermodynamic panel.The fluid absorbs the solar and ambient radiation collected by the panel.The temperature difference caused by external agents such as sun, rain or wind ensures the fluid to gasify.
- The compressor sucks the hot gas and compresses it, raising its temperature and pressure.
- The fluid enters the condenser where the energy is transmitted from the fluid to the water inside.
- With high pressure and after living large part of its heat to the condenser, the refrigerant reaches the expansion valve in the liquid phase again. This is a reduction in pressure which causes fluid to be able to enter the panels.
- This flow continues until the water in the cylinder reaches 55°C. Once this is achieved the system goes into standby.
