Energy conservation of conventional fuels by use of solar energy
An attempt is made to conserve conventional fuel by use of solar energy. For a given energy demand pattern, conventional fuel can be saved by replacing it with a solar hot water system for domestic applications, including ...
Thermal analysis of active solar distillation system
In this communication, the thermal analysis of a distillation unit under the active mode of operation has been presented. In this case, the basin of the solar still unit has been integrated with the panel of collectors ...
Design parameters of a shallow bed solar crop dryer with reflector
In this communication, energy balance equations for a passive solar crop dryer with shallow bed, including the effect of a reflector placed over the wall of the chimney, have been written in terms of design and climatic ...
Experimental simulation of a grain drying system
In this Technical Note, an experimental simulation of a grain drying system has been tested. The experimental observations have been used to evaluate the drying time for wheat crop for a given moisture content. The effect ...
