Abstract

The experimental study on a forced-convective single-pass solar air collector with fins has been conducted. The work is a comparative study of performance analysis of solar collector at different mass flow rate, solar radiation and depth of the air flow channel. The fins attached at the back of absorbing plate to improve the thermal performance of the system. The results showed that the thermal efficiency increase with flow rate to 60% at 730 Wm -2. The study concluded that the thermal efficiency is increased proportion to solar radiation, flow rate and the depth of the channel.
