Abstract: This study presents fuzzy control to improve solar heat absorbance efficiency (SHAE) of a forced circulation solar waterheater (FCSWH) system, and simplify user settings. FCSWH system controls startup and stopping of circulating pump based ontemperature difference between outlet and inlet of collector. Fuzzy control adapts to uncertainty of sunshine duration and modulatestemperature difference to maximize SHAE. According to results, water temperature in heat storage cylinder increased by3~5°C under fuzzy control system, showing a clear advantage in SHAE over manual control system.
