Abstract
Analytical, computational and experimental studies were carried out to investigate heat transfer and fluid flow in micro-channel absorber plates for compact (thin and light-weight) solar thermal collectors. The main objective of the work was to study different design and/or operating scenarios as well as study the significance of various micro-scaling effects.\ud \ud Analytical investigation showed that, under similar conditions, the proposed design yields a much higher fin efficiency, F and collector efficiency factor, F’ compared with the conventional solar collector design. An analytical model combining convective heat transfer in the collector fluid with axi...
