Abstract

A wall-integrated solar heating system refers to an architectural design approach that combines hot water generation with the building's construction system. This combination allows this system to feature a hot water generation function and become part of the building façade. Environmental control devices and/or designs in buildings that are capable of harvesting solar thermal energy can effectively capture and store this solar energy and provide energy through the use of, for instance, a hot water system or a low-power thermoelectric material. These systems used in buildings can be easily divided into three types: sensible, latent, and thermo chemical energy storage (TCES).In this study, we have attempt to combine the curtain wall structures, building construction practices, heat transfer mechanisms, and a natural circulation loop designed to develop an innovative, wall-integrated solar heater using CuO + water nanofluid on the concept of an Energy harvesting facade. This work accomplished by performing an experimental investigation using two different types working fluid, water and CuO + water nanofluid with1%, 2%, 3% of volume fraction of nano powder. For this combination of working fluid the efficiency of system is found, 42.48%, 48.26%, 55.58% and 66.63% respectively.
