Solar energy has a great potential to reduce the worldwide energy consumptions thus mitigating the impact of building systems on the global warming. Transpired solar collectors (TSC) are cost-effective solutions and phase changing materials (PCM) implemented within them could store the energy during the periods when solar radiation is available. The current paper is part of comprehensive numerical studies and analyses the mesh independency studies conducted in ANSYS Fluent with SST k-Ω viscous model and the numerical model preliminary results (3.3ºC rise in temperature). The results emphasise that the 5 million cells mesh is the feasible option for the studied case.
