The use of heat pipes in solar collectors offers several advantages regarding flexibility in operation and application, as they are very efficient in transporting heat even under a small temperature difference. Compared with other systems powered by evacuated tube collectors or flat plate solar collectors using a wickless heat pipe, little attention has been paid to flat plate solar collectors wick assisted heat pipe. In this paper, an analytical model based on energy balance equations assuming… CONTINUE READING
