How does the temperature gradient of the SPRING panel change according to outdoor conditions?
As with all thermal solar panels, the thermal behavior of our DualSun SPRING panels varies according to several parameters.
In order to analyse in more detail the parameters that influence the thermal behaviour (DT) of a solar panel, let's recall the calculation formula:

DT = ToutTin = Heat input to the fluid by the solar panel [°C]
a0 = Panel optical efficiency [%]
a1 = Loss coefficient [W/K/m²]
A = Panel area [m²]
G = Solar irradiation [W/m²]
⍴ = Volumic mass of fluid [kg/m3]
Q = flow rate [m3 /s]
Cp = Calorific capacity of the fluid [kJ/K/kg]
Tout = Panel outlet temperature [°C]
Tin = Panel inlet temperature [°C]
Ta = Ambient air temperature [°C]
The panel data a0, a1 and A are available in the data sheets accessible in the online documentation area.
These values come from the EN 9806:2017 certification tests for unglazed solar collectors carried out with a wind speed u = 1 m/s.
You can also find the above details in the installation manual of the DualSun SPRING panel.
