Solar Energy is the greatest potential of all the sources of renewable energy and presently a small amount of this form of energy is being used. It will be one of the most important energies especially when other sources of conventional and non-renewable energies in the world deplete. Now-a-days, different technologies, methodologies have been developed and introduced to get the optimum energy from the sunlight. In this work, a new design of solar plate collector system has been developed using TRIZ (a Russian acronym for Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) by arranging solar collectors in various positions and angles to get optimized energy form the sun. The inventive principles suggested by the novel tool for innovation TRIZ have been used for the new design of solar plate arrangements which has been tested in real time with handful of experiments to get optimized energy form the sun. Apart from solar power optimization, to overcome the open terrace area constrains for multi storey buildings, high-rise dwellings, a new design solar plate collector arrangement has been designed and developed exclusively for multi storey buildings. This may be tested with rigorous experiments in further study.
Key words: Solar Energy, TRIZ, Optimization, Innovation, Multi storey buildings, High-rise dwellings.
