Keywords: Solar Water Heater, Thermosyphon, Solar Insolation, Flat Plate Collector, collector efficiency



Abstract: In this experimental study, the active solar water heating direct circulation systems the thermo siphon solar flat plate collector has been tested at Government medical college, (21.15ºN, 79.09ºE), Nagpur, Maharashtra, India. The various data needed are collected from Indian metrological department and during months from November to January i.e. during the winter season, the responses from the system has been studied and analyzed. The maximum temperature was obtained was around 70ºc and the minimum ambient temperature was 18ºc. The objective of the present work is to evaluate efficiency of flat plate collector in Nagpur region considering these aspects of the flat plate collector both theoretically and experimentally. A test setup is fabricated and experiments conducted to study these aspects.
