%T Analysis of the Performance of a Solar Water Heating System with Flat Collector
%V 98
%X The thermal performance of a solar water heating with
1.00 m2 flat plate collectors in Cascavel - PR, is which presented in
this article, paper presents the solution to leverage the marketing of
solar heating systems through detailed constituent materials of the
solar collector studies, these abundant materials in construction, such
as expanded polyethylene, PVC, aluminum and glass tubes, mixing
them with new materials to minimize loss of efficiency while
decreasing its cost. The system was tested during months and the
collector obtained maximum recorded temperature of outlet fluid of
55°C, while the maximum temperature of the water at the bottom of
the hot water tank was 35°C. The average daily energy collected was
19.6 MJ/d; the energy supplied by the solar plate was 16.2 MJ/d; the
loss in the feed pipe was 3.2 MJ/d; the solar fraction was 32.2%, the
efficiency of the collector was 45.6% and the efficiency of the system
was 37.8%.
