Аннотация

Application of solar energy in energy recovery systems for both industrial and residential applications are becoming more popular due to the public's environmental concerns, solar technology's low cost, and availability. In this study, the performance of a multi-pass Solar Air Heater (SAH) for different lengths of flat fins has been studied numerically. An experimental test rig was prepared and the results have been collected during the winter at Daejeon, South Korea. The obtained results were used as the benchmark for the numerical simulations. A numerical model has been developed in the Ansys Fluent commercial code using the appropriate User Defined Functions (UDFs) and has been validated against the obtained experimental data. Using the developed numerical setup the effect of different working conditions on the total heat transfer of the SAH has been studied.
