Abstract

The objective of this work is to model and verify a direct solar water heating system in Baghdad, Iraq using TRNSYS software to meet the demand of hot water for 25 persons. This is achieved by using 10 m 2 of a flat plate collector and 600 liters storage tank. This system is analyzed with an auxiliary electric heater. Performance is simulated by TRNSYS with the weather data of TMY file for Baghdad, Iraq. The annual solar fraction obtained was 69% and the system cover the hot water needs during the cold months with the help of auxiliary electric heater. The maximum auxiliary energy was needed during the months of December (about 1025 MJ/month) and February (about 1000 MJ/month).
