Abstract:

Mosques are classified as one of the most attractive places for the Libyan people during prayer times, where ‎electrical power is consumed extensively and converted into many energy types. Hot water is required for ablution during ‎the cold season, which occupies 5 months per year, approximately, where electrical power is utilized to provide hot water ‎demand. In this paper, the possibility of install solar water heaters in ten mosques in the city of Tripoli is studied, as the ‎agreement between the General Authority of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs and CSERS states. Therefore, a detailed study is performed for site ‎shading probability during the year using Climate Consultant 6.0 software, and Sketchup Make 2017. Furthermore, the solar ‎water heating system is designed by (T*SOL Pro 5.5) design and simulation software. The resultant has illustrated that the employing ‎of thermosyphon systems could‏ ‏fail to fulfil water heating load in the studied mosques, due to the presence of the surrounding ‎buildings shade among winter and the high water heating load of such crowded mosques. However, it is suggested to use central pumped ‎solar water heating systems (forced circulation), which is able to provide high capacities with low electrical consumption. Moreover, the ‎pumped systems are compatible with the conventional fuel powered systems.‎
