Mathematical Model for Heat Collector

pdf PDF


Paper describes a mathematical model for the temperature of a heat collector in a system with a solar collector and heat tank. We use first order differential equations to model it. The obtained formula defines the temperature in the time domain and allows us to determine in advance the final temperature of the process. Determination of the temperature at the end of the process enables us to plan the energy consumption and achieve noticeable savings. In this paper we present a mathematical derivation that is a model and example that enables development of other formulas for different processes
