Volume 13, Issue 2 , March 2022, , Pages 158-168

  This paper deals with the development of compound parabolic collectors (CPCs), utilizing a partial glass sheet adjacent to the absorber plate for the purpose of performance improvement. The collector under study has a parabolic shape, whose cavity is filled with air and the turbulent natural convection ...  Read More

Effect of Radiative Filling Gas in Compound Parabolic Solar Energy Collectors

S. A. Gandjalikhan Nassab; M. Moein Addini

Volume 12, Issue 3 , September 2021, , Pages 181-191

  In the present paper, the use of radiating gas instead of air inside the cavity of compound parabolic collectors (CPSs) is suggested and verified by numerical analysis. The collector under study has a simple cone shape with flat absorber which is filled with a participating gas such as carbon dioxide ...  Read More
