Abstract

The project is about the performance of single and double pass V-groove solar collector. A solar collector will trap heat energy from sun and transfer the heat to the working fluid to be used in any heating application. However, some of the heat is loss to surrounding by radiation and natural convection. Through this project, the author will simulate the performance of single and double pass V-groove solar collector by using computer software. The effect of four different parameter that are the mass flow rate of working fluid, the length of solar collector, the groove height and the groove angle to the efficiency of the solar collector will be presented in this paper. In order to make the simulation, some formulas and model is used by the author. The details of the formula and model will be explained in the Methodology part of this paper. Four graphs are made to represent the effect of four parameters to the efficiency of V-groove solar collector. Based on the result, efficiency of V-groove solar collector will increase when mass flow rate of working fluid increase and decrease when the length of solar collector, the groove height and groove angle increase. Further discussion about the findings will be discussed in the Result part of this paper.
