Cooling Enhancement of a Photovoltaic Panel Through Ferrofluid Stimulation Using a Magnetic-Wind Turbine

N. Heidari; M. Rahimi; N. Azimi

Volume 16, Issue 4 , October 2019, , Pages 35-52


  Wind energy is used to rotate a magnetic turbine in order to remove heat from the surface of a photovoltaic (PV) panel. A three-bladed turbine, which rotates with wind energy, has rotational motion underneath the studied PV panel in order to move Magnetic Nano-Particles (MNPs). In addition, effects of ...  Read More

The CFD Provides Data for Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy to Model the Heat Transfer in Flat and Discontinuous Fins

R. Beigzadeh

Volume 16, Issue 2 , June 2019, , Pages 57-69

  In the present study, Adaptive Neuro–Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) approach was applied for predicting the heat transfer and air flow pressure drop on flat and discontinuous fins. The heat transfer and friction characteristics were experimentally investigated in four flat and discontinuous fins ...  Read More

An investigation of heat and mass transfer enhancement of air dehumidification with addition of γ-Al2O3 nano-particles to liquid desiccant

Leila Omidvar Langroudi; hassan pahlavanzadeh; sara nanvakenari

Volume 13, Issue 4 , November 2016, , Pages 96-112

  This study introduces an experimental and theoretical investigation of the performance of a proposed air dehumidification system using a nanofluid of γ-alumina nano-particles in LiBr/H2O as a desiccant. Comparative experiments organized using a central composite design were carried out to evaluate ...  Read More

Experimental Study on the Effect of Heat Loads, Fill Ratio and Extra Volume on Performance of a Partial-Vacuumed Thermosyphon
Volume 6, Issue 4 , October 2009, , Pages 15-26

  This paper reports a study on the effect of the heat flux, cooling water flow rate, fill ratio and extra volume on the overall performance of a partially vacuumed thermosyphon. A rig was made from a 1 m copper tube with an inner and outer diameter of 17.5 and 19 mm. The heights of the evaporator, the ...  Read More
