Abstract
Flat plate solar collector with plastic transparent insulation materials and ventilation channel as overheating protection system inserted between the absorber and the back insulation has been studied numerically. First, a general object-oriented unsteady model of this solar collector is developed and presented. It allows solving, in parallel way, every component separately and interacting with its neighbors to set the boundary conditions in every time step of the simulation. Every component can...
