Project Description

Based upon parameters given, create a matlab code for the overall heat loss, net heat gain, and overall performance of an evacuated tube solar collector. The parameters and equations for the collector are given, and the equations for the overall heat loss are given. You are to use Matlab to iterate, preferably via Newton-Raphson method, the overall heat loss, which has already been derived. The net heat gain and overall performance is to be evaluated and calculated via any method preferred by the engineer. A Solidworks assembly of the collector has been provided, along with its design parameters, you are to run a flow simulation via Solidworks, creating cut plots and animations of the flow at a final outlet temperature of 300 degrees Fahrenheit with inlet conditions similar to that of Miami, Florida.
