dc.description.abstract A computer simulation model of a domestic solar water heater, using natural circulation, is presented here. Tests were conducted on an experimental system, using a flat plate collector and solar storage tank, auxiliary to an electric geyser. Temperatures were recorded, solar radiation was measured using a solarimeter and thermosyphon mass flow rates were measured using a thermistor inserted into the flow circuit. Close correlation was obtained between predicted and experimental results. Daily efficiencies varied according to the times and quantities of hot water draw offs. The thermal performance of similarly designed solar water heaters could be predicted using this computer simulation model with the necessary modifications. en_ZA
