Utilizing solar energy has received a giant activity by energy applications into distinctive states within the world. The sun is regarded strong supply providing uninterrupted coherent energy. In this research, simulation study has been done to estimate the performance of dual purpose solar collector (DPSC). Flat plate dual purpose solar collector with dimensions (194 cm length, 95 cm width and 14 cm thickness) has been used for heating the air and water for different using. Rectangular fins are used in air duct to increase heat transfer coefficient in air heater part. COMSOL Multiphysics 5.4 computer program has been used to calculate the theoretical results. Many parameters such as a different flow rate and temperatures for the inlet working fluids are investigated.
