A thermodynamic model is developed to analyze the thermal performance of twophase solar collectors. The well-known equilibrium homogeneous theory is used to model the two-phase flow in the solar collectors. The resultant set of coupled ordinary differential equations for saturated pressure and quality of working fluid in the collector tubes are solved by an iterative procedure using a fourth-order RungeKutta method. The results are then applied to determine the thermal performance of a solar… CONTINUE READING
