A graduate student from the Department of Electromechanical Engineering, University of Technology, Mohammad Salam Ghannam received a master's degree with an appreciation of his thesis:
Heat Transfer Enhancement of the Prabolic Trough solar Collector using Different Nano Fluid
Improve the heat transfer of a concave parabolic solar collector using different nanomaterials
The letter dealt with the use of different nanomaterials to improve the performance of the Parabolic Trough Solar Collector with different flow velocity (50, 30, 20) per hour. The nanoparticles of CUO, O3 and AL2 were added to the water at a concentration of 0.05% Copper tube as a receiver of sunlight concentrated by the reflector surface.
The results showed that the addition of copper particles CUO to water gives the best performance of the system and flow rate 50 liters / hour gave the best efficiency.
The discussion committee consisted of Prof Abdullatif Ahmed Jadallah as President of SDI Saadi Tred Kurdi from the University of Technology / Department of Electromechanical Engineering and Prof. Aseel Khalil Shi'a from Mustansiriya University - Faculty of Engineering - Mechanical Engineering Department Wa Members Prof. Saad Tami Hamidi and Prof. Fakret Abdul Karim Fattah supervisors of the University of Technology Department of Electromechanical Engineering.
