A performance prediction methodology is developed which is applicable to most commercially available integral collection-storage passive solar domestic hot water systems. A computer model of a general ICS component was created to be compatible with the transient simulation program TRNSYS[3], and was used to develop and verify the simpler monthly performance prediction method. The method uses the system parameters from available test methods, monthly average climatic data, and load size to predict long term performance of ICS systems.
