Abstract

It has been proved that creation of vacuum between the absorber and the cover of a solar collector is resulting in a substantial improvement in the collector efficiency due to reduction in the heat loss through convection ad conduction. In this work, the performance of evacuated tube collectors is investigated using TRNSYS simulation model. Different levels of concentrations have been considered in the simulation to predict the power generation. The simulation results showed that the thermal performance of evacuated tube collectors with high concentration ratio can provide a good improvement to the receiver output.
