Abstract:

Solar water heaters -- also called solar domestic hot water systems -- can be a cost-effective way to generate hot water for your home. They can be used in any climate, and the fuel they use – sunshine is free. Energy in the form of heat is required for diverse applications in various sectors including domestic, agricultural, commercial and industrial sectors. As there is a gap between demand and supply of thermal energy, it is essential not only to design and fabricate novel evacuated tubular systems but also to evaluate the thermal performance of existing evacuated tubular systems so as to match the demand and supply of heat energy. In this connection, the present investigation was carried out with specific objectives in connection with design, development and experimental evaluation of the thermal performance of the evacuated tube assisted systems for the design and fabrication of the solar water heater to use unconventional energy as a means to obtained hot water for domestic applications, at comparatively low cost and high capacity by the use of material like plastic lateral tubes, HDPE pipe, old glasswool, thermocol, plastic drum , G.I. sheet collect or boxes. India is blessed with solar energy in abundance at no cost. Solar water heating systems has been widely used in various industrial applications. Solar water heating collectors capture and retain heat from the sun and transfer this heat to a liquid. Solar water heating (SWH) is the conversion of sunlight into renewable energy for water heating using a solar thermal collector. Solar water heating systems include storage tanks and solar collectors. There are two types of solar water heating systems: active, which have circulating pumps and controls, and passive, which do not.
