- Over the years, solar collecting systems have gained interest in renewable energy. This study investigated improving the efficiency of the working fluid in thermal solar systems by using nanofluids with three concentrations of alumina, 0.1, 0.3, and 0.5 wt%. The UV-vis absorbance, electronic conductivity, and thermal transfer properties of the nanofluids were analyzed, and the thermal changes with exposure to solar radiation in an experimental collector system were measured by pyranometer. The electronic conductivity, thermal conductivity, and UV-vis absorbance increased with the alumina concentration. Moreover, the temperatures of the nanofluids increased more under solar irradiation than that of distilled water. This implies that the alumina nanofluids absorb solar energy more efficiently than water. The findings of this study suggest that the use of both alumina nanofluids and nanoparticles will improve the efficiency of thermal solar power systems.
