Mechanism of Solar Collector for Flat Plate



Solar collector main theme is collect radiation from sun and it transfer to heat energy or electricity to other storage  such as a battery. One can use various types of solar collector such as a disk, flat and tube in thermally. In solar collector radiation absorb but the amount of supply heat is greater than absorb of heat. Radiation is mainly depends on environment, place, temperature, sunlight and air. For running a turbine solar collector used for initially running. If a collector any one compare concentrating solar and non concentrating solar collector  there have basic difference such as concentrating solar has more benefits because it received radiation in whole area. In 1950 two person whore they Hottel & Whillier give a new theme to us for flat plate solar collector which has more benefit. A flat plate solar collector has some gradient such as it contain fluid for received heat from dark plate where fluid used as a water, air and so on, In this flat plate dark place must be insulated for do not heat come and go in this system from outside.  As a absorber there use a metals such as aluminum and copper which is more prefer for it’s low cost and high corrosion resistance and getting high efficiency with a good service and performance. Application of flat solar collector is mainly used for electricity for reducing high cost of bill in a house building or industry. In commercially it also manufactured for cars, energy storage, laundry and so on. There are some basic difference among tube and flat solar collector such as tube collector has space where stored water fluid or air fluid which is contain or set up in middle position of two collector. For these it absorb radiation is not a continuous process but flat plate solar collector is a continuous process.

“Equalizer connection is needed in lap winding armature but not in wave winding “ why ?

The equivalent circuit of a four point – pole dynamo with a simplex winding. The voltage induced in each path is assumed to both to be same and should be if the reluctance of each magnetic path is the same, so that the lines of flux cut by each inductor of each path are the same. However wear of the bearings or deflection of the armature shaft may cause the armature to be closer to some poles and farther from others, thus changing the length of the air gap, and therefore the reluctance of the magnetic circuits of the poles is not identical. This factors cause the voltage in the materials making up the magnetic circuit. These factors cause the voltage in each parallel path differ, and the unequal voltages in turn cause flow of a circulatingcurrent through the windings and brushes , undue heating of the armature and waste the power. To reduce the circulating current, points on the winding which should be at the same potentials are brought to the same potentials by connecting them with …



Differentiate among progressive die, compound die and combination die.

Progressive die: The dies which performed two or more operations at different stages every time the ram descends is known as Progressive die.
The principle advantage of Progressive die is in the number of operations that can be achieved with one handling of the stock strip. The main disadvantage is that work pieces may become “dished” as they pushed through the die as they generally have very little support.

Compound die: A compound die differs from a progressive die in that it performs two or more cutting operations during one stroke of the press at one station only.

Compound dies are slower in operation than progressive dies but they have advantages for certain jobs, especially where tolerance are close (1)the cutting operation, by the action of the knockout plate ,ensures flatness of the blank.2 Large parts can be blanked in a smaller press if compound dies rather than progressive dies areused.
Combination dies:A die in which a cutting operation is combined with a noncutting operation …

Boiler: A steam boiler is usually a closed vessel made of steel. Its function is to transfer the heat produced by the combustion of fuel to water and ultimately to generate steam.
Types of boiler:
           1. Fire tube or smoke tube boiler            2. Water tube boiler

                                          Figure: Boiler
Fire tube boiler: In fire tube steam boilers, the flames and hot gases, produced by the combustion of fuel pass through the tubes which are surrounded by water. Fire tube boilers are generally used for relatively small steam capacities and low to medium steam pressure. As a guideline fire tube boilers are completive for steam rates up to 12000kg/h and pressures up to 18 kg/cm².Fire tube boilers are available for operation with oil, gas or solid fuel.

Example: Cochran boiler, Locomotive boiler, Scotch marine boiler, Velcon boiler, simple vertical boiler.
