A solar collector is a device that utilizes the solar radiation to heat a fluid (usually water or air), which can be used for suitable application. This is done by absorbing the solar radiation on an absorber plate and thus heating it. This heat is then transferred to a circulating fluid for use elsewhere. In this project, the author has to re-design the existing solar collector using new materials. The main objective of this project is to improve the performance of solar collector by increasing the water temperature inside of the solar collector. This report consists of five main topics that are introduction, literature review and theory, methodology of project work, result and discussion, lastly conclusion and recommendations. In the chapter I, introduction part, background of the study in defmed along with problem statement and objective of this project. While in the second chapter there are literature reviews and theories involved in this project. For the chapter three, the author discussed about the methodology been used to complete this project. After that there is chapter 4, which is result and discussion of this project. Last chapter of this report is conclusion and recommendation. In completing this project, lot of research and literature in internet, books and journal has been done by author in order to get the information about this topic throughout this project. The author also used AUTOCAD softwares to design the flat-plate solar collector before work out to make a working model of flat-plate collector. Finding that the author discovered, in a way to increase the efficiency of solar collector, he found a way to increase the heat gain and decreasing the heat loss from solar collector.
