Strategies To Improve The Thermal Performance Of Heat Pipe Solar Collectors In Solar Systems: A Review, Abdellah Sharifian, Mehdi Khiadani, Ataollah Nosrati

ECU Publications Post 2013

Invention of evacuated tube heat pipe solar collectors (HPSCs) was a huge step forward towards resolving the challenges of conventional solar systems due to their unique features and advantages. This has led to their utilization in a wide range of solar applications surpassing other conventional collectors. However, relatively low thermal efficiency of heat pipe solar (HPS) systems is still the major challenge of solar industry evidenced by numerous studies conducted mainly during the last decade to improve their efficiency. To date, several review papers have been published summarizing studies relevant to utilization of HPSCs in various thermal applications. However, to ...
