Thermal Analysis of Concentrating Collectors

Like a flat-plate collectors, an energy balance on the absorber yield the following equation under steady-state conditions.

Thermal Analysis of Concentrating Collectors

Like a flat-plate collectors, an energy balance on the absorber yield the following equation under steady-state conditions.


Equ.(4.106) is written under the assumption that the contribution of the diffuse component of solar radiation is negligible. Similar to Equ.(4.72), ql can be written in terms of an overall loss coefficient deined by the equation.
