Experimental study of a solar pool heating system under lower flow and low pump speed conditions

Highlights Validated swimming pool and collector model, good agreement with experimental data. Solar pool heating system performance optimized based on COP (energy ratio). Optimized system achieves pump energy savings of approximately 60%. System produces enough pressure to keep the vacuum relief valve closed. Potential for...
