Solar collectors

Abstract

A mathematical computer model has been developed for the prediction of the thermal performance of a flat-plate solar collector used as the generator for an absorption cycle cooling system. The system employs thermoelectric cells to power its pump. The exponential relationship between the auxiliary energy and the collector area is used to optimize the system. It is predicted that the system will become feasible when the fuel price is raised to four times the current value.
