Abstract:
We present results of our investigation on flat-plate air solar collector equipped with chicanes wing delta shape fixed on non-selective absorber. The absorber was composed of aluminum plate covered with copper. The transparent cover of collector was realized in polycarbonate. This inexpensive device permitted the optimization of collector efficiency by the wing delta chicanes disposed in strips of 10, 13 and 26. Inclination angles used were 10, 20, 30 and 140°. Collector efficiency increased with increasing of slants of chicanes and also with increasing number of the strips. The best efficiency about 81% was obtained with 26 strips at slant 140°.
