Sun energy in Indonesia is 5Kwh/m2/day average per year. This alternative energy can be convert to solar thermal up to 80% efficiency, the percentage is highly significant compare to electric conversion that only has 20%. To provide any process requirement for heating, an empirical research of reflective array accumulator has been done, so that a design simulation for the accumulator has to be held. The accumulator can be used as a heat energy supplier for drying, egg hatching, food oven and other requirement. The sun energy trapping method is a reflective array. This method aims to maximize the energy captured and stored in an accumulator and has to be maintained for 24 hours by opening and closing the array. This simulator will calculated and control some input such as water mass, accumulator temperature, environment temperature, humidity and sun intensity. The array control performance to watch diffuse solar light intensity by time. The result of the simulation will give absorption storage capability, insulation capability to watch sun energy performance per day. It is expected that with the simulation, it can simplify the design of the accumulator and improve the efficiency of heat energy storage. The absorption capability perform 72%.
