Review on Evacuated Glass Tube Based Solar Liquid Heaters
Vaibhav P Shah,  Dr N M Bhatt
As the world’s population quadruple in the last half-century, the demand for energy also severely increased. In order to meet those global energy demands, engineers and researchers have been developing renewable technologies. Solar energy found to be most promising renewable source. Solar energy can be harvested directly in two forms. The first useful form is electricity, which is obtained by exposing a photovoltaic material to sunlight. This technology is referred to as solar photovoltaic. The second useful form is heat; here heat is transferred from sunlight to a working fluid such as heat transfer oil or water. This technology is generally referred to as solar thermal technology. These technologies are useful at either the industries or residences. Here, in this article typical review has been conducted on solar thermal technology based evacuated tube solar collector for heating liquid fluids.
Keywords- Solar liquid heater, Evacuated tube collector, Heat pipe ETC, Water-in-glass collector, U-tube, Vacuum Tube Collector
