Collection efficiency when collector efficiency factor is present
Instantaneous Collection Efficiency = (Collector Efficiency Factor*(Area of absorber plate/Gross Collector Area)*Average Transmissivity-absorptivity Product)-(Collector Efficiency Factor*Area of absorber plate*Overall loss coefficient*(Average of Inlet and Outlet Temperature of fluid-Ambient Air Temperature)*1/Flux Incident on Top Cover)
Collection efficiency when heat removal factor is present
Instantaneous Collection Efficiency = Collector heat removal factor*(Area of absorber plate/Gross Collector Area)*(Flux absorbed by plate/Flux Incident on Top Cover-((Overall loss coefficient*(Inlet fluid temperature flat plate collector-Ambient Air Temperature))/Flux Incident on Top Cover))
Collector heat removal factor
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)))
Collection efficiency when average transmissivity-absorptivity product is present
Instantaneous Collection Efficiency = Collector heat removal factor*(Area of absorber plate/Gross Collector Area)*(Average Transmissivity-absorptivity Product-(Overall loss coefficient*(Inlet fluid temperature flat plate collector-Ambient Air Temperature))/Flux Incident on Top Cover)
Heat loss from collector
Heat Loss from Collector = Overall loss coefficient*Area of absorber plate*(Average temperature of absorber plate-Ambient Air Temperature)
Collection efficiency when fluid temperature is present
Instantaneous Collection Efficiency = (0.692-4.024*(Inlet fluid temperature flat plate collector-Ambient Air Temperature))/Flux Incident on Top Cover
Transmissivity Absorptivity product
Transmissivity - Absorptivity product = Transmissivity*Absorptivity/(1-(1-Absorptivity)*Diffuse Reflectivity)
Instantaneous collection efficiency
Instantaneous Collection Efficiency = Useful heat gain/(Gross Collector Area*Flux Incident on Top Cover)
Useful heat gain
Useful heat gain = Area of absorber plate*Flux absorbed by plate-Heat Loss from Collector
Bottom loss coefficient
Bottom Loss Coefficient = Thermal Conductivity of Insulation/Thickness of Insulation

## Transmissivity Absorptivity product Formula

Transmissivity - Absorptivity product = Transmissivity*Absorptivity/(1-(1-Absorptivity)*Diffuse Reflectivity)
τα = τ*α/(1-(1-α)*ρd)

## Reason of actual heat absorbed in the absorber

The fraction of solar radiation that is transmitted through the cover
and the fraction of this transmitted radiation that is absorbed in the
absorber.
