Abstract

Solar energy is the better alternative source due to its availability all over the world. There are many devices are developed which replaces the use of conventional energy sources by the solar energy. There are various types of solar collectors which converts solar energy into useful heat energy. The main criterion for the selection of collector is the temperature of working medium required for the application. The paper reviews the effect of various parameters which influence the performance of solar flat plate collector. Various researchers have carried out numbers of experiments and studied the performance of solar flat plat collector by changing the various criteria like material of absorber plate, size and material of fluid tubes, use of glass covers, insulation material, spacing between absorber plate and cover, use of Nano-fluid etc. and concluded that increase in the thermal efficiency of solar flat plate collector in comparison to conventional solar flat plate collector. The paper gives the idea regarding selection criteria to create the best design and operational conditions with the best economic characteristics for solar flat plate collectors.
