Abstract Modeling and simulation are considered as fast and cheap analytical tools by engineers in developing optimal solar energy systems for a given application prior to their construction. This study involved modeling and simulation of the solar air heater system. The modeling results showed a good agreement with the experimental results and the model was used to investigate the effects of the design parameters on the performance of SAH. It was observed that the efficiency of the collector increases with increase in both the collector length and width and the system attains its optimum values of efficiency between 1.0 to 2.0 m. In addition better performances of the collector are obtained with smaller channel depths.
