Energy conservation of conventional fuels by use of solar energy
An attempt is made to conserve conventional fuel by use of solar energy. For a given energy demand pattern, conventional fuel can be saved by replacing it with a solar hot water system for domestic applications, including ...
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 ...
Techno-economic evaluation of a solar hot water system
We have developed a procedure for assessing the economic viability of a solar water heater in a dynamic economic environment. The optimum life time for replacement of the system and the payback period are calculated for ...
Active solar distillation system—An investment alternative to a solar hot water system
The present analysis evaluates a collector assisted solar distillation system as an investment alternative to a solar hot water system. Techno-economic analysis is performed for both systems in the same economic environment ...
Solar thermal systems with transparent insulation
In this paper, theoretical models are formulated to predict the thermal behaviour of various solar systems, viz. shallow solar pond water heater, built-in-storage type solar water heater, isolated non-airconditioned room ...
