Abstract: In this communication, the concept of reverse flat plate collector has been used as a heating medium of air for the drying of agricultural products in a cabinet dryer. The reverse flat plate absorber is a non-concentrating collector which can collect solar heat at high temperature unlike conventional non- concentrating collectors. The thermal performance of the proposed dryer is analyzed by solving the various energy balance equations. An attempt has been made to optimize the vent area of the dryer for speedy flow of humid air from the drying chamber to the atmosphere. In order to have parametric studies, numerical computations have been carried out for a typical day in June for Delhi climatic conditions. The performance of this system is compared with that of conventional cabinet dryers. It is found that the reverse flat plate absorber dryer gives the better performance.
