QUITIAQUEZ, William et al. Análisis numérico de un sistema de calentamiento de agua utilizando un colector solar de placa plana. Ingenius [online]. 2020, n.24, pp.97-106. ISSN 1390-860X.

The aim of the present investigation was to perform a flat plate solar collector numerical analysis by CFD, in addition to a comparison with experimental results. The working fluid reached a maximum outlet temperature of 20.16 °C at 12:00, the value of solar radiation was determined for the geographical coordinates latitude -0.2252 and longitude -77.84, similarly, at this time it was possible to obtain a collector surface temperature of 27.12 °C, as a peak value. The heat transfer device lowest performance was determined at 10:00 with an outlet water temperature value and maximum temperature at the collector surface of 18.65 and 20.48 °C, respectively. The experimental results showed a maximum temperature of 20.93 °C and a minimum temperature of 19.4 °C, resulting in a 4.01 % error between the computational simulation and the experimental data.
