Abstract: The alternative energy sources are new option in front of world to overcome energy crisis and pollution related issues. The solar energy, wind energy and bio mass are three major sources and out of these three energy sources solar energy is the easiest source to extract useful energy because the wind energy can be useful particularly in coastal area where there is high wind velocity and energy extraction bio mass needs either chemical conversion or thermo chemical conversion process. The objective of present work is to carry out thermal performance the proposed helical solar heater by using K type thermocouple at appropriate location of the experimental set up; using thermocouple the change in water temperature for 20 lt water capacity will be carried out.
Keywords: Alternative Energy Sources, Helical Solar Water Heater.

Scope of the Article: Thermal Engineering
