The riser tube solar receiver of a circulating fluidized bed solid particle absorption solar thermal energy system was numerically modeled for analyzing hydrodynamic and heat transfer behaviors of the solid particles in the riser. Hydrodynamics of the model is validated by comparing radial distribution of void fractions with an experimental study. For the heat transfer from the opaque walls of the receiver that is heated to high temperatures by the solar rays concentrated by the heliostat field, a simple fractional model is used in which radiative transfer is neglected and total heat flux is distributed to phases according to the instantaneous volume fractions at the boundary cells. MFIX: Multiphase Flow with Interphase eXchanges code of NETL is used with a 2.5D Eulerian-Eulerian computational model for transient simulations. The 2.5D grid is a combination of planar cells and cylindrical cells with the determined optimum fraction of planar cells of 0.15. For the solar receiver riser, transient and time averaged results of void fraction and gas and solid phase temperature distributions were numerically obtained and analyzed.

Detailed simulations of parabolic trough collector for investigating enhancement of heat transfer to absorber tube flow
Uygur, Sinan; Tarı, İlker; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2021-2-12)
In this thesis, a detailed method to simulate heat transfer and fluid flow of parabolic trough solar collectors is presented. An optical model of the considered collector is created with Tonatiuh ray tracing program. The data of ray tracing analysis is exported to MATLAB as a binary file for post-processing. Curve fitting and surface fitting to the data are performed to obtain the heat flux distribution on the absorber tube’s outer surface. User-defined functions (UDFs) for ANSYS Fluent Computational Fluid ...
Passive Cooling Assembly for Flat Panel Displays with Integrated High Power Components
Tarı, İlker (2009-08-01)
Passive cooling of flat panel display designs with integrated high power components is investigated with the help of recently available semi-emprical and CFD based heat transfer correlations. A heat-spreader-heat-sink assembly is proposed for effective external natural convection cooling of the display panel. A flat vertical surface and plate finned heat sinks with various fin heights are considered as heat sinks in the assembly. Heat dissipation limits for both types of heat sinks are determined for variou...
Numerical investigation of bubbling fluidized bed to be used as high temperature thermal energy storage
Hiçdurmaz, Serdar; Tarı, İlker; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
A thermal energy storage unit designed to be used in a solid particle concentrated solar energy system is analysed with the help of a commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics tool. Hydrodynamics of the bubbling fluidized sand bed of which dimensions are 0.28 m x 1 m x 0.025 m to be used as direct contact heat exchanger are modelled and validated. Geldart B type particles with diameter of 275 micron and density of 2500 kg/m3 are used in modelling of bubbling fludized sand bed. Syamlal O’Brien drag model with ...
Modelling, transient simulation and parametric study of parabolic trough collector with thermal energy storage
Akba, Tufan; Güvenç Yazıcıoğlu, Almıla; Baker, Derek Keıth; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2014)
In this thesis, a mathematical model of a parabolic trough collector field with a two-tank molten salt thermal energy storage is developed. The model is built in TRNSYS and by using MatLab, novel valve and thermal energy storage control algorithms are implemented. The model is sensitive to transient states inside the components and variations in weather and demand. Optimum parabolic trough collector length is determined for different insolation values to show the relation between direct normal insolation an...
