Wind induced heat losses from outer cover of solar collectors
The top cover of a fiat plate solar collector is generally exposed to wind. In indoor experiments it is necessary to simulate this wind. Correlations have been developed for the wind heat transfer coefficient over flat ...
An attempt to present briefly some important aspects of energy-education as an emerging discipline is made in this paper. Suggestions concerning the evolvement of an effective approach for energy-education at all levels ...
Renewable energy education for technicians/mechanics
Some of the issues relating to renewable energy education are highlighted. Outlines of proposed course curricula for certificate and Diploma level courses are briefly presented and discussed.
Experimental test procedures for determination of the optical efficiency factor of a parabolloid concentrator solar cooker
Three somewhat different experimental test procedure may be employed for the determination of the optical efficiency factor,Fn,of a parabollied concentrator solar cooker.The procedure are briefly discribed and typical ...
Top heat-loss factor of double-glazed box-type solar cooker from indoor experiments
The top heat-loss factor (Ui) of a box-type solar cooker varies with plate temperature, wind heat-transfer coefficient and ambient temperature. A method for correlating Ui with these variables is presented for a cooker ...
