Experimental Studies and CFD Modeling on Solar Distillation System
An attempt is made to model a conventional solar distillation system and comparing the experimental results with simulated model. Solar distillation is an old process, but cost wise and for domestic purpose it is most reliable one. Evaporation and Condensation are the simultaneous process occurring in solar distillation. The property of the distilled water is measured. It is evident that, the distilled water produced by solar still is quite resembles the commercial distillation water. Experimental work was compared with simulation study. Temperature distribution over the glass is verified with Computational Fluid Dynamic approach using Ansys. The computational result is validating with the experiment work.
