There are several types of Solar Collectors: Flat Plate Solar Collectors, Evacuated Tubes Solar Collectors, Concentrators, CPC solar collectors, Photo Voltaic and so. This web page is referring to Flat Solar Collectors for domestic, industrial and commercial utilization and requires Temperatures below 120 ºC

General Performance Information

SOLAR COLLECTORS DESCRIPTION


Solar Collector Formulae
Effectiveness = a - b*X - c*X^2*G
Effectiveness= no dimensional parameter

X = ((Ti+To) / 2 - Ta) / G
Ti = Liquid Inlet Temperature to the Solar Collector ºC
To = Liquid outlet Temperature from the Solar Collector ºC
Ta = Average ambient Temperature in Sunligth Hours ºC
G = Instantaneus Solar Irradiation Parameter Wh-Sq.m

Standard Pressura Droop
Pd= a*V + b*V^2          Millibars
V = In solar Collector Flow, Volume = Li/h
