Received Date: May 11, 2017 / Accepted Date: May 25, 2017 / Published Date: May 31, 2017
There are various different experiments going on all around the world to achieve the high efficiency of collector and this research paper is based on experimental study on the performance evaluation of Parabolic Trough Collector (PTC), which is associated with the use of ethylene glycol and distilled water based mixture as working fluid. It has been observed from experimental studies that the overall thermal efficiency of PTC with the use of a mixture at 100 L/h found to be 6.4%, which is much higher than the efficiency outcome at 160 L/h around 5.89%. Moreover, this paper also demonstrates the experimental evaluation of thermo physical properties like thermal conductivity, density or specific gravity and viscosity of the ethylene glycol and distilled water based mixture.
