Optimization of number of effects for higher yield from an inverted absorber solar still using the Runge-Kutta method
This paper presents a computer simulation model based on the Runge-Kutta 4th-order method to solve the energy balance equations for a multi-basin inverted absorber distiller unit. The effect of reuse of latent heat from ...
Estimation of an efficiency factor for a greenhouse:a numerical and experimental study
An analytical expression for instantaneous thermal efficiency (n)of a greenhouse in terms of design and climate parameters has been derived by considering the energy balance equations for different component of the ...
A low cost solar water heater suitable for rural, as well as urban areas, of vietnam
The built-in-storage type of solar water will be suitable for rural as well as urban areas of vietnam,in genral and the Hanoi region,particular(mainly for domastic purposes).In this paper,a thermal model for optimisation ...
Optimization of collector and basin areas for a higher yield for active solar stills
This communication presents a thermal anaysis of an active solar still for the optimization of collectors as well as the basin area for a higher yield for a given water depth. Expressions for the temperatures, the water ...
Convective mass transfer in a double-condensing chamber and a conventional solar still
In this communication an attempt has been made to develop the convective mass transfer relation for a doublecondensing chamber solar still (DCS) and a single-sloped conventional solar still (CSS) for different operating ...
