The goal of the research was to evaluate the performance of water-in-glass evacuated tube. A comparison was made with flat plate systems operating in Sydney, Australia.
The simulation programme TRNSYS was used to evaluate the performance and energy efficiency of the systems.
In addition to the developed simulation model, the research also revealed that the performance of evacuated tube collector system was less sensitive to tank size than the flat plate collector systems.
