  • TITLE: An Integrated Collector Storage Solar Water Heater and Study of its Temperature Stratification

    AUTHORS: Atish Mozumder, Anjani Kumar Singh

    KEYWORDS: Solar Water Heater; Integrated Collector Storage; Temperature Stratification

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Applied Sciences, Vol.3 No.1, March 29, 2013

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we describe an integrated collector storage solar water heater for the North Western region of India for use as domestic water heater during the winter season and present the experimental results of temperature stratification. The system consists of a steel water storage tank with azimuthal orientation such that its walls face south east, south west, north east and North West directions. The sunlit walls (south east and south west) and the top cover surface of the storage tank are covered with transparent insulation material (TIM) and the off-sunlit sides with opaque insulation. Experimental results show that the top layer is at the highest temperature. The top layer is drained using a new design of the outlet. The system can be used in rural areas or as a pre heater in more affluent households. The system can return the cost of conversion of the storage tank into a Solar Water Heater in one winter season by saving the cost of electrical energy required for heating water during winter months.
