Abstract

The purpose of this article is to improve the performance of the heat exchanger. Improving the performance of the  heat  exchanger  will  ultimately improve  the performance  of  the  solar  water  heater.  We design feedbacks and optimal temperature control feedback. Heater Exchanger temperature control improves the solar water heater operation. Four methods of temperature control are used, the most desirable according to the obtained simulations, feedback method and feed forward. By changing the Gain (Kc) in the Proportional-Integral (PI) controller, we reach the desired temperature. In this paper, programming in Matlab, Simulink environment and Graphical User Interface (GUI) is used to clarify the results are used to better display the results.
