Abstract: The performance of the solar collector was experimentally studied under the different twist conditions namely helical twist, helical with left right twist and screw twist, L/D ratio (i.e., 0, 3 and 6) and time. Based on the standard relationship, efficiency of the collector was calculated for the different experimental combinations. Further, the significance of solar collector process parameters was identified by statistical analysis. Also the optimal solar collector process parameters to achieve the maximum the efficiency was identified and a mathematical regression was generated to forecast the efficiency of the solar collector.
