Abstract:

Immense emphasis has been given on the development of active solar energy systems which involve the integration of several subsystems such as solar energy collectors, heat-storage containers, heat exchangers, fluid transport and distribution systems, and control systems. This paper deals with thorough experimental investigation and comparative study of performance of Evacuated Glass Tube inside the flat plate collector and provision of Phase Change Material (PCM) inside the storage tank. This change in the pre-existing system enables the warmed fluid to carry the heat to a storage subsystem from which continuous hot water can be drawn for use at night and on cloudy days. A precise and detailed analysis of a solar flat plate collector is quite complicated because of the many factors involved. Efforts have been made to compare experimental value with formulated mathematical model which will describe the thermal performance of the collector in a computationally efficient manner.
