Solar thermal collector
The increasing demands to energy, from one side, and the global warming crisis of the world, from other side, are the reasons for developing renewable energies [ 1 ]. Among all resources of renewable energies, solar energy is the unlimited resource which can be exploited all over the world. The prices for solar generation technologies continue to rapidly decrease; so that, in some cases, the cost is competitive with the fossil fuel costs [ 2 ]. The thermal conversion of solar energy is possible by different collectors including flat and concentrating collectors. For the purpose of reaching large-scale energy conversion in both forms of electricity and thermal, the usage of different solar concentrating collectors would be a favorite selection [ 1 ]. Besides the application of solar flat and concentrating collectors, other kinds of energy conversion units have been focused by different researchers. For achieving wind and rotating turbines, solar chimneys would be a preferred option in the windless zones [ 3 ].

Many innovative technologies have been developed around the world to meet its energy demands using renewable and nonrenewable resources. Solar energy is one of the most important emerging renewable energy resources in recent times. This study aims to present the state-of-the-art of parabolic trough solar collector technology with a focus on different thermal performance analysis methods and components used in the fabrication of collector together with different construction materials and their properties. Further, its industrial applications such as heating, cooling, or concentrating photovoltaics , solar energy conversion processes, and technological advancements in these areas are discussed. Guidelines on commercial software tools used for performance analysis of parabolic trough collectors, and international standards related to performance analysis, quality of materials, and durability of parabolic trough collectors are compiled.
Solar energy increases its popularity in many fields, from buildings, food productions to power plants and other industries, due to the clean and renewable properties. To eliminate its intermittence feature, thermal energy storage is vital for efficient and stable operation of solar energy utilization systems. It is an effective way of decoupling the energy demand and generation, while plays an important role on smoothing their fluctuations. In this chapter, various types of thermal energy storage technologies are summarized and compared, including the latest studies on the thermal energy storage materials and heat transfer enhancements. Then, the most up-to-date developments and applications of various thermal energy storage options in solar energy systems are summarized, with an emphasis on the material selections, system integrations, operational characteristics, performance assessments and technological comparisons. The emerging and future trends are finally outlined.

In the recent years, a lot of research has been carried out in the field of nanofluid based solar collector, leading towards the enhancement of working efficiency even at low atmospheric temperature or at low sunlight levels regions of the world. The present review pertains to the research progress related to the performance execution of solar collector using nanofluid. It is observed that the thermal energy storage system TES , using solar collector, is a useful device for storing sensible and latent heat in a unit volume.

A solar thermal collector collects heat by absorbing sunlight. The term "solar collector" commonly refers to a device for solar hot water heating , but may refer to large power generating installations such as solar parabolic troughs and solar towers or non water heating devices such as solar air heaters. Solar thermal collectors are either non-concentrating or concentrating. In non-concentrating collectors, the aperture area i. A common example of such a system is a metal plate that is painted a dark color to maximize the absorption of sunlight. The energy is then collected by cooling the plate with a working fluid , often water or glycol running in pipes attached to the plate. Concentrating collectors have a much larger aperture than the absorber area.

Thermal applications are drawing increasing attention in the solar energy research field, due to their high performance in energy storage density and energy conversion efficiency. In these applications, solar collectors and thermal energy storage systems are the two core components. This paper focuses on the latest developments and advances in solar thermal applications, providing a review of solar collectors and thermal energy storage systems. Various types of solar collectors are reviewed and discussed, including both non-concentrating collectors low temperature applications and concentrating collectors high temperature applications. These are studied in terms of optical optimisation, heat loss reduction, heat recuperation enhancement and different sun-tracking mechanisms. Various types of thermal energy storage systems are also reviewed and discussed, including sensible heat storage, latent heat storage, chemical storage and cascaded storage.
Solar Energy Utilization pp Cite as. Various types of thermal energy storage systems are introduced and their importance and desired characteristics are outlined. Sensible heat storage, which is one of the most commonly used storage systems in practice, is described. The three sensible heat storage media are discussed and their advantages and disadvantages are reported. A well mixed water storage tank and stratified water tank are presented. Both analytical and experimental studies carried out on packed bed storage systems are discussed. Various types of latent heat storage systems are described.
