Experimental approach of integrated flat plate solar collector is carried out without PCM. 37 fins are attached below of the absorber plate. PCM is integrated with flat plate collector in this system to enhance the performance. The purpose of fin is to transfer the heat from the absorber plate to any PCM below the absorber plate. Without PCM measurement for the performance is tested during daytime and night time to be compared with reference model. Three values of flow rate and tilt angles have been set to analyses the performance for full day. Combination of 0 degree inclination and 4 kg/min water flow rate produced the highest hot water temperature that is 66 OC. The next day hot water temperature can be maintained at 39 0C.
