How to Calculate Collector heat removal factor?
Collector heat removal factor calculator uses Collector heat removal factor = (Mass Flow Rate*Specific Heat Capacity at Constant Pressure)/(Overall loss coefficient*Gross Collector Area)*(1-e^(-(Collector Efficiency Factor*Overall loss coefficient*Gross Collector Area)/(Mass Flow Rate*Specific Heat Capacity at Constant Pressure))) to calculate the Collector heat removal factor, The Collector heat removal factor formula is defined as the ratio of the actual heat transfer to the maximum possible heat transfer through the collector plate. Collector heat removal factor is denoted by F_{R} symbol.
How to calculate Collector heat removal factor using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Collector heat removal factor, enter Mass Flow Rate (m), Specific Heat Capacity at Constant Pressure (C_{p}), Overall loss coefficient (U_{l}), Gross Collector Area (A_{c}) & Collector Efficiency Factor (F′) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Collector heat removal factor calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.299877 = (5*1005)/(1.25*11)*(1-e^(-(0.3*1.25*11)/(5*1005))).
