Determination of Optimum Tilt Angle and Orientation of a Flat Plate Solar Collector for Different Periods in Kano

Abstract: The importance of collector tilt angle and orientation in solar systems cannot be overemphasized. It determines the intensity of the radiation on a collector and its ability to reflect, transmit and absorb the radiation. In this study, collector tilt angle and orientation for Kano, Nigeria which lies on latitude 12.10N was determined experimentally. A solarimeter mounted on a plane of a simply constructed flat plate solar collector was used to measure the solar radiation and determine the angle at which the record is high. The optimum collector tilt angles for the months of November to April were found to lie between (Φ + 3o) ≤ β_opt≤ (Φ + 33o). At these inclinations, the mean monthly solar radiation recorded were about 6%, 3% and 11% higher than at latitude Ф, Ф+150 and Ф -150 respectively
