The conventional method of calculation of convection coefficient from Nusselt number is discussed in the section "Convection Coefficient from Nu." In the section "Convection Length Only Results," it is shown that the convection radial change in temperature method has massive errors when compared to the Nu method results and needs to be adjusted.
However, this model does not include the influence of the wind velocity on the forced convection coefficient or the influence of the PV module inclination angle on the free convection coefficient.
Here, we will present an enhanced, low-order model that includes conduction with variable thermal conductivity, convection with varying convection coefficient, varying diameter (and thus area) along the length and radiation, all implemented in a convenient MATLAB code.
In this paper, a class of singularly perturbed boundary-value problems (BVPs) with discontinuous convection coefficient is considered on the unit interval [OMEGA] = (0, 1) and the convection coefficient is assumed to be discontinuous at a single point x = [xi] [member of] [OMEGA].
In the range of [T.sub.ONB] [less than or equal to] [T.sub.w] [less than or equal to] [T.sub.CHF], Rohsenow correlation [9] is used for the heat convection coefficient:
(a) Concrete-plastic foil-air convection coefficient = 0.0040 kJ/[degrees]C [m.sup.2] s
The average convection coefficient for the external flat surface of the chip located at distance (L) from the leading edge is related to the local value according to equation [bar.h] = 1/L [[integral].sup.L.sub.0] h x dx [17].
In order to analyse the effect of convection on the specimen temperature, several values of heat convection coefficient are studied.
The decrease of the convection coefficient from a high value to a particular point in the beginning of heating process shows that the heat transfer was dominated by conduction.
