Abstract

Present study experimentally investigates thermal performance of Solar Air Heater (SAH) having three different types of absorber plate (Type-I, Type-II, and Type-III) in presence of natural solar intensity. Type-I is a simple absorber plate without any surface augmentation. While in Type- II black painted cylindrical aluminums cans as cylindrical fins are attached on the flat plate with vertical-staggered position and Type-III is similar to type-II but fins having holes on its surface. Experimental investigation reveals that the average daily thermal efficiency is highest in Type-III in presence of solar intensity.
