In order to promote the outlet temperature and heat collection efficiency of solar air collector, this study puts forward a folded baffle solar air collector, which can improve the heat collection efficiency of the collector by enhancing the air turbulence inside the flow passage and increasing the heat exchange area. In this paper, the outlet temperature and heat collection efficiency of solar air collector with different baffle angles and different inlet flow velocities are simulated and calculated by the Fluent software. The results show that under the conditions of inlet temperature of 278 K and ambient temperature of 274 K, the collector with inlet flow rate of 2 m/s and folding angle of 60° is more suitable.
