Modeling the Thermal Performance of Solar Heated Fish Pond: An Experimental Validation
Lopa Ghosh, G.N. Tiwari, Tribeni Das and Bikash Sarkar

Abstract:
An analytical model is presented to study the effectiveness of a low cost arch shape greenhouse used for heating the fishpond during extreme winter. The model was solved for the climatic conditions of New Delhi (Latitude-28° 35/ N, Longitude-77° 12/ E and an altitude of 216 m above mean sea level). Parametric studies involved the effects of different greenhouse fishpond related parameters including depth of pond water, transmissivity of greenhouse cover and number of air changes in the greenhouse on water heating in the fishpond. The thermal performance of fishpond was assessed in terms of thermal load leveling. A 4.76-5.83°C rise in water temperature could be achieved as compared to open pond of the day. The maximum heat gain and loss are around 14:00 to 17:00 and 1:00 to 7:00 h of the day, respectively. From production point of view greenhouse fish pond showed better performance compared to open pond.
