Collectors tested according to this International Standard represent a wide range of applications, e.g. glazed flat plate collectors and evacuated tube collectors for domestic water and space heating, collectors for heating swimming pools or for other low temperature systems or tracking concentrating collectors for thermal power generation and process heat applications.

flat plate collectors are mostly found in domestic hot water and space heating, industrial processes, vapour absorption refrigeration and air conditioning system. Therefore, due to their various applications, there is continuing endeavour of a designer to determine thermal performance of flat plate solar collectors.

Downloadable (with restrictions). Due to environmental effects of extensive use of energy, solar collectors are being installed on a large scale in many countries. The accurate determination of its efficiency by a test laboratory strongly affects the system performance prediction, cost-benefit valuations, technology introducing in public policies and certification programs.

The efficiency of a solar collector is a key factor for the performance of thermal facilities.

As the weather conditions vary continuously during the day, the instant collector efficiency depends not only on the components employed in its construction but also on. The complication is that the value of h depends on temperatures, fluid-velocity, and the area, shape, orientation, and roughness of the plate surface.

A value of h for a 1 m by 1 m plate will usually be larger (and never smaller) than h for a 2 m by 2 m plate under otherwise identical conditions. The larger plate will transfer more heat because it has four times the area of the smaller plate. HIGH PERFORMANCE FLAT PLATE SOLAR THERMAL COLLECTOR EVALUATION 5 I.
