Simulation Analysis on a Special Air-Heating Collector
It is the numerical simulation of the thermal properties of a special polygonal collector plate with hole in air-heating. With the ray-tracing solar load model provided by Fluent, use radiation heat transfer equation to solve the solar radiation, and then consider loading radiation heat into the source terms of the energy equation. In the transition season, under the mode of operation of complete new wind, through the study of air flow and heat transfer in the collector box, the paper discusses and analyzes the temperature and velocity fields, thermal effects, as well as the wind speed and solar radiation and other related factors in different collector modules of the collector plate.
