    Explanation
    A flat plate pumped solar thermal collector is a device used to convert solar energy into heat energy. It consists of a flat plate made of a heat-absorbing material, such as copper or aluminum, which is painted black to enhance heat absorption. The plate is covered with a transparent glass or plastic cover to trap the heat inside. When sunlight falls on the plate, it is absorbed and converted into heat, which is then transferred to a fluid (usually water or a heat transfer fluid) circulating through tubes or channels in the collector. This heated fluid can be used for various applications like space heating, water heating, or electricity generation.
