Abstract

There are a few thermal components which can play an important role in power-generating systems, refrigeration systems, or any such system. Similarly, there are few thermal systems which can be operated with solar energy. In this chapter, thermal modeling of few such systems like the cooling tower, heat pipe, micro-channel heat sink, solar air heater, solar water heater, solar chimney, and other systems of such type is presented. The objective function for each of these systems is derived from the thermal model. The optimization of a derived objective is performed by implementing 11 different metaheuristic algorithms for each system, and then the comparative results are tabulated and discussed.
