Abstract

The collector pipe is the heart of the heat transfer mechanism involved in a parabolic trough collector (PTC).The paper envisages the implementation of helically extruded-cut fin in the collector pipe of a solar PTC and its influence in increasing the heat transfer properties, there by comparing each of the respective properties with the conventional plane pipe and solid finned pipe. A conventional plane pipe model has been used as a base for comparison of the two types of finned pipes and the various heat transfer properties that vary has been systematically presented using CFD. The thermal resistance property has been used as the standard of calculation. The HT domain of a PTC is designed with the fins and their contrasting heat transfer rate , hydrodynamic properties , thermal properties has been found and has been reported.
