Abstract: This paper presents the thermal performance of a community type solar pressure cooker based on evacuated tube solar collector. The developed design of solar pressure cooker has separate parts for energy collection and cooking unit and both are coupled by heat exchanger. The paper has presented the performance results of experimental study conducted on solar pressure cooker and a simulation model has been developed for predicting the cooker performance under a variety of operating and climatic conditions. The theoretical model is validated against the experimental results. The obtained results have suggested a possibility of several batches of solar cooking on a clear sunny day under typical conditions of Delhi.
