Heat transfer augmentation, solar collector, twisted tape, wire coil.
Solar energy is the most promising, environmental friendly energy source and renewable to sustain the growing energy demand. Parabolic trough collector is a concentrating collector which concentrates the solar radiations to the focal axis of parabolic reflector where a receiver is placed. Concentrated solar radiation heat the HTF flowing through the receiver. In order to have better performance of the solar collector it is necessary that maximum amount of heat transferred to the heat transfer fluid. Hence heat transfer augmentation is one of the major domain in enhancing the performance of solar collector. The present paper gives a comprehensive literature on various heat augmentation techniques to enhance the performance of solar collectors.
