Abstract

Solar thermal system is important energy for us because of its gain energy free from atmosphere. Solar energy is a non-polluting energy and also play important role for global warming effect. India is a most favourable country for this energy and in India, Gujarat and Rajasthan have the potential for wide spread application of parabolic through solar collator to harness the solar energy. In solar water heater normally temperature is 80°C during mid-day. When high rises building has a solar water heater system on terrace so heat losses in pipe for below side floor because of very long length of pipe. Below side floor has not get good temperature during morning and cloudy days. In order to maximize temperature heat transfer in receiver tube need to be augmented. In past research using a technique like inserting porous media, twisted tap, Design parabolic collector etc. in this research review paper solar parabolic collator use with some changes in receiver tube. Iron net insert into the receiver tube for reduced pressure drop. This experiment occurring at Rajkot (Gujarat-India).
