On effect of wind speed on passive solar still performance based on inner/outer surface temperatures of the glass cover

Publication year: 2011brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 22 June 2011brA.A., El-SebaiibrThe thermal performance of a passive single basin solar still was investigated by computer simulation using the climatic conditions of Jeddah (lat. 21° 42′ N, long. 39° 11′ E), Saudi Arabia under the two conditions: (a) the temperatures of the inner Tgi and outer Tgo surfaces of the still cover are equal and (b) the temperatures of the inner Tgi and outer Tgo surfaces of the still cover are not equal. Effect of wind speed V on the daily productivity Pd of the still for these conditions was studied. It was indicated that for the condition Tgi = Tgo, there is a…br Highlights: ► Effect of wind speed on productivity of a single basin solar still was studied. ► The inner surface temperature of the still cover strongly affects the still performance. ► Correlations between Pd and V had been obtained under the conditions Tgi = Tgo and Tgi ≠ Tgo.
