This study analyses the parameters concerning the performance of Transpired Solar Collectors (TSCs)and offers a monitoring methodology that addresses some of the potential errors and uncertainties, including instrumentation use. The study also investigates three TSCmodules of equal area but different dimensions and compares their efficiencies by altering several parameters. The cavity of the systems is also monitored for different fan velocities and for different wind directions. The experiments took place outdoors in order to simulate real life installations.
