Is it possible to control the heat booster supply by predictive piloting based on weather forecasts?
Yes, predictive control of the heat booster supply of a solar hot water tank is possible based on short-term weather forecasts.
To do this, two conditions must be met:
- To know precisely the daily consumption profile of domestic hot water (DHW), in order to generate a relevant piloting
- Calculate the amount of solar energy to come thanks to weather forecasts that are increasingly accurate and detailed.
Such solutions are currently under development.
