Solar Thermal Water Heater Operation under Thermosiphonic Mode of Flow

Ahmad Faizan Sherwani


Abstract: In modern times there is a great need to find an alternate energy source to replace our dependence on fossil fuels which are depleting at a very fast rate. Solar energy is the best source of energy amongst all of the renewable sources of energy due to its large abundance. The present experimental study is focused on the study on thermosyphonic mode of operation in solar water heating system. The experimental setup consists of flat plate collectors, halogen system, cold and hot water storage tanks. Experimental study was conducted to investigate some specific parameters such as- Overall heat coefficient (UL. ), Heat Removal Factor ( FR), Efficency (n) In our experiments we intend to calculate some parameters as well as compare the results for thermosiphonic as well as with variation of radiation levels
