Abstract

The purpose of this research is to know the effect of slope angle of the flat plate collector on the performance of solar water heater. The research was conducted in Makassar city of Indonesia. This research was conducted on solar water heater system by varying the angle of collector slope at 5ͼ, 10ͼ, 20ͼ and 30⁰. Measurement data are the temperature of the collector input, the temperature of the collector output, the temperature of water in the tank, and the intensity of solar radiation. The measurement data were processed to obtain the input energy of system, the output energy of system, and the efficiency of system. The result shows that the greater the collector's slope angle, the greater the performance of the system. It is indicated by the largest maximum output energy produced by the angle of 30ͼ of 9858.32 kJ, and the largest maximum efficiency is also produced by the angle of 30ͼ of 30.78%.
