Transient analysis of evacuated tubular solar collector with finite difference technique
This paper presents transient analysis of an evacuated tubular solar collector. Basic energy balance equations for the glass envelope, the absorber and the fluid are solved using the finite difference technique to predict ...
Transient analysis of a triangular built-in-storage solar water heater under winter conditions
In this paper, the performance of a triangular built-in-storage solar water heater under winter conditions has been studied. The triangular cross-section of the system results in higher solar gain and enhances the natural ...
Performance prediction for a triangular built-in-storage-type solar water heater with transparent insulation
In this paper, the design of a triangular built-in storage-type solar water heater with transparent insulation on the top and sides is studied under various operating conditions. The transient performance of the system is ...
Effect of Baffle Plate on The Perf Ormance of a Triangular Built-in-Storage Solar Water Heater
The triangular design of a solar water heater not only enhances the overall gain to the system but also improves the natural convection between the absorbing plate and the water, leading to better performance of the system. ...
Analytical Study of Collector Solar -Gain Enhancement by Multiple Reflectors
We have considered the general case of a collector with four reflectors. An analytical model is developed for study of the effect of an individual reflector on the collector. Reflectors R-l, R-2, R-3, and R-4 face south, ...
