The extended mathematical model of a flat-plate solar collector-evaporator permits prediction of the effects of boiling of the working fluid in the collector tubes on the efficiency of the collector. The efficiency increases sharply and approaches the ideal on transition from single phase flow to the subcooled and saturated boiling regimes, regardless of the nature of the working fluid.
