How to Calculate Heat loss from collector?
Heat loss from collector calculator uses Heat Loss from Collector = Overall loss coefficient*Area of absorber plate*(Average temperature of absorber plate-Ambient Air Temperature) to calculate the Heat Loss from Collector, The Heat loss from collector formula is defined as the heat losses that occur from the plate due to convection, conduction, and radiation. Heat Loss from Collector is denoted by q_{l} symbol.
How to calculate Heat loss from collector using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Heat loss from collector, enter Overall loss coefficient (U_{l}), Area of absorber plate (A_{p}), Average temperature of absorber plate (T_{pm}) & Ambient Air Temperature (T_{a}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Heat loss from collector calculation can be explained with given input values -> 162.5 = 1.25*13*(310-300).
