Studies on Thermal Performance of Closed Type Parabolic Trough Solar Collector
To a closed type parabolic trough solar collector, thermal performance was analyzed, a mathematical model was set up, and test-bed of collector to heat efficiency test was built. According to the experiment test data, the accuracy of the thermal mathematics model was validated. The results show that the model simulation accuracy is so higher that the model is reasonable and available.
