    Abstract :

    This study also designed the processing parameters of the flat plate collector based on orthogonal arrays Processing parameters of a flat plate collector are the key factors affecting its performance. These parameters include the collector polymer tube material, copper plate material, number of collector polymer tubes, tube diameter, thickness of the bottom insulating material, iron tube with phase change material (PCM). The quality characteristics include the efficiency coefficient. After obtaining the data on each quality characteristic are obtained from the orthogonal arrays, main effect analysis and ANOVA (analysis of variance) are conducted to determine the parameters that have significant effects on these quality characteristics. The data are then preprocessed by grey relational generation, and the optimal combination of processing parameter levels is determined through grey relational analysis.
