Numerical Simulation Study on Transpired Solar Air Collector
MetadataShow full item record
The unglazed transpired solar air collector is now a well-recognized solar air heater for heating outside air directly. In this article, researchers introduced numerical simulation tools into the solar air collector research area, analyzed the performance characteristics of the unglazed transpired solar air collector and compared them with several kinds of traditional solar air collectors. The results showed that the unglazed transpired solar air collector has unparalleled advantages in the ventilation preheating area and also proves that CFD tools have their own advantages in the solar air collector research area.
