In this model different types of solar thermal collectors (Evacuated tube Solar Collector (ETC) and Parabolic Trough Solar Collector (PTC)) design model with Therminol-VP1 heat transfer oil is attached to PCM storage tank. The system is used to generate hot steam via flash evaporation tank. User will be able to discover the total area based on the assigned thermal load volume. User will be able to select between two types of solar collectors. The following paramters can be calculated:
1-Mean plate temperature.
2-PTC and/or ETC total area.
The system main units are:
1-PTC and/or ETC.
4-Flash evaporation tank.
5-Water pump unit.
**MatLab-SimuLink should be used to run the model.
