Different test methods for SDHW tanks have been evaluated. Both experimental and theoretical investigations have been carried out. A marketed solar tank has been tested in a heat storage test facility. The yearly thermal performance of solar heating systems with the tested solar tank has been calculated. The measured and calculated results have been compared to results obtained by the solar energy test laboratory in Rapperswil, Switzerland and results from TI, Tåstrup. Based on the investigations new test methods have been proposed.
