The V-Groove Solar collector performance using Fresnel lens and glass glazing

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study presents the performance of solar collector with two type of glazing. Experimental results show that temperature output and thermal efficiency of solar collector using Fresnel lens as glazing is better than the use of glass. The temperature output is inversely proportional to mass flow rate, resulting in an increase of solar collector efficiency. This study carried out the mass flow rate in a range of 0.008-0.036 kg/sec at two different intensities, namely 576 and 755 W/m2 under solar simulator. The average solar collector efficiency using Fresnel lens as glazing were 8-11% more efficient than glass. The improvement in temperature output and efficiency makes Fresnel lens as an alternative glazing in solar air collector applications.
