Experimental investigation on thermal performance of thermosyphon flat-plate solar water heater with a mantle heat exchanger

Publication year: 2010brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 11 June 2010brJinbao, Huang , Shaoxuan, Pu , Wenfeng, Gao , Yi, QuebrThe thermal performance of thermosyphon flat-plate solar water heater with a mantle heat exchanger was investigated to show its applicability in China. The effect on the performance of the collector of using a heat exchanger between the collector and the tank was analyzed. A “heat exchanger penalty factor” for the system was determined and energy balance equation in the system was presented. Outdoor tests of thermal performance of the thermosyphon flat-plate solar water heater with a mantle heat exchanger were taken in Kunming, China. Experimental results show that mean daily efficiency of the thermosyphon flat-plate solar water heater with a…
