Experimental study and optimization of a solar still

Journal Article:

Abstract

The aim of this investigation was to study the influence of different parameters on the operation of a solar still for production of distilled water. These parameters are essentially classified in two categories: external parameters such as solar radiation, ambient temperatures and wind speed; internal parameters such as thermal insulation, water film thickness and the color of the side walls. The experiments were carried out on two identical stills. The effects of the different parameters were investigated by comparing the output of the two stills under different experimental conditions. This study resulted in the development of a simple inexpensive still which can readily be put in practical use in the area.
