Abstract :

Flat plate collectors developed by HOTTEL and WHILLIER in 1950s are the most common type of solar collector which are widely for domestic house hold hot water heating and space heating, where demand temperature is low. A Solar tracking mechanism is an effort to increase the efficiency of water heating through the solar module. Since the solar module is stationary, rays falling on it are at different angles at different points of time. It takes lot of time to fall perpendicular to the solar module where more amount of solar energy is wasted which leads to decrease in efficiency. During morning and evening hours the efficiency of solar module is as less as negligible leads to very low output of the system. Hence in order to improve efficiency, solar tracking mechanism is used. Key words : Solar tracking, flat plate collector, efficiency, solar module.
