Question #7267
Estimate the energy collection and efficiency of a module of a two-cover water heating flat-plate collector operating at a latitude of 30&deg; in a space heating process. The date is March 11 and the hour is 1500 to 1600. Assume Ts=Ta; (&tau;&alpha;)e = 1.02 &tau;&alpha;; all incident solar is beam radiation. Ignore dust and shading and ignore edge losses. Take &rho;g= 0.6. The design parameters of the module are as follows:

0.75 m wide, 5 in long
Two glass covers, KL = 0.0125 per cover
Metal plate 1.0 mm thick; k = 50 W/m &ordm;C
Tubes are 10 mm diameter on 100-mm centers
&alpha; = 0.95, independent of incident angle
Back insulation 80 mm thick; k = 0.048 W/m &ordm;C
Water flow rate 0.03 kg/s
Heat transfer coefficient inside risers 300 W/m2 &ordm;C
Slope from horizontal = 50&deg;
Cover spacing = 25 mm
Plate emittance &epsilon;p = 0.95
For this hour, the operating conditions are as follows:
Solar radiation for the hour on a horizontal surface 1.40 MJ/m2
Ambient temperature 2&deg;C
Wind heat transfer coefficient 10 W/m2 &deg;C
