Creating a TRNSYS Model of a Spiral Flow Flat Plate Solar Water Heater (SFSWH) and Comparingit to a Parallel Flow Flat Plate Collector: A Recent Study

June 8, 2021 Engineering 0

In Kovilpatti, Tamilnadu, 9°10′N 77°52′E, a particular SFSWH system for domestic hot water is proposed. After this SFSWH device was successfully simulated in TRNSYS Software, the results were clarified utilising parallel flow solar water heaters as a comparison. To begin, with TRNSYS software, a complete model of a spiral flow flat plate collector is generated, including heat transfer, output temperature, and performance. The TRNSYS simulation programme is then used to compare this model to a parallel flow flat plate collector. With the use of NASA’s surface meteorological and satellite data, The SFSWH equipment plays a role in Kovilpatti, Tamilnadu, India, based on solar energy year data and ISRO’s solar calculator programme. The accuracy of the TRNSYS model of the SFSWH was tested at Kovilpatti, and the requisite findings were obtained under Kovilpatti weather circumstances. The expected software results are compared to the original results to complete the validation of this SFSWH TRNSYS model simulation programme. The TRNSYS model result for the SFSWH reveals that it outperforms a standard parallel flow water heater. As a result, the TRNSYS model is trustworthy, and the experimentation is alternated.
