Flat Plate Solar Collector Conjugated Heat Transfer (CHT), ANSYS Fluent CFD Training


Flat Plate Solar Collectors (FPSC) are widely used in the solar industry to convert solar radiation into thermal energy. The efficiency of FPSCs depends on various factors, including the design of the collector, the materials used, and the collector’s location.

In this simulation, we investigate radiation’s effects on the water’s temperature passing through pipes in an FPSC located in Doha with a 15-degree tilt angle using ANSYS Fluent software.

The geometry of the FPSC was designed using SpaceClaim software and meshed using Fluent Meshing software in Polyhedra type. It must be noted that the whole number of elements created is 1868457.

Flat Plate Solar Collectors Methodology

The simulation was conducted by solving Navier-Stokes equations for fluid flow and energy equations for heat transfer. The boundary conditions were set as follows:

– Inlet temperature of water = 300k
– Inlet mass flow rate of water = 0.025 kg/s
– Outlet pressure = atmospheric pressure

The Discrete Ordinate (DO) Radiation Model simulates radiation behavior on the FPSC.


The simulation results showed that solar radiation  affects the temperature of the water passing through pipes in an FPSC. The outlet temperature is equal to 300.385 K.
