Design and Fabrication of Solar Water Heater with CPC by using Wafers Packet

2019 International journal of recent technology and engineering  
The objective of our project is to create a system which can heat water at maximum temperature and give more efficiency than the current system used in the market today for daily water heating purpose and also less costly which is the main factor. So we made a prototype system of less expensive material and another main material such as wafer packet which will absorbs more sunlight. The evacuated collector for natural circulation discharge through single ended water-in-glass evacuated tubes

Therefore, the concept of Compound Parabolic Collector (CPC) is used to heat the water and with a small aperture area as compared to other collectors is possible to achieve a maximum water temperature up-to 100°C. The system is of reasonable cost as compared to existing ones. Collector efficiency is nearly 65%, however if all the control about reflecting rays and insulation is used for reducing the heat loss may be efficiency increasable comparably
