Renewable energy education:challenges and problems in developing countries
Development and dissemination of efficient and economic techniques of harnessing new and renewable sources of energy to bridge the ever increasing gap between the energy demand and supply in developing countries is a ...
Energy demand and supply options for primary processing of rice in India
Energy demand for primary processing of rice in India has been assessed and feasibility of two renewable energy supply options evaluated. A model for obtaining least cost energy supply mix for a rice mill has been proposed.
Testing of box-type solar cooker: Second figure of merit F2 and its variation with load and number of pots
The performance of a box-type solar cooker can be represented in terms of two figures of merit, F 1 and F 2. The second figure F2 is a controlling factor in the sensible heating of a load. The present work validates F 2 ...
Solar energy for paddy parboiling in India: financial feasibility analysis
Low-efficiency, rice-husk-based furnace-boiler systems are generally used for meeting thermal energy demand of paddy parboiling in India. Shortages in rice-husk availability are met with fuels such as coal, furnace oil, ...
Financial feasibility analysis of box-type solar cookers in india
A framework for financial evaluation of a box-type solar cooker, using cost functions for its capital cost, has been developed. The annual benefits accrued to the user are quantified in terms of number of meals cooked per ...
Experimental test procedures for determination of the optical efficiency factor of a parabolloid concentrator solar cooker
Three somewhat different experimental test procedure may be employed for the determination of the optical efficiency factor,Fn,of a parabollied concentrator solar cooker.The procedure are briefly discribed and typical ...
