Design Fabrication and Performance of Hybrid Active Double Slope Solar Still
Chirag Patel,  Kuldip Dodiya,  Ashvin Suthar
Solar is the most promising and reliable source since millions of years. Solar energy is abundant, inexhaustible and available everywhere free of cost without political hindrances. It is found form the critical literature survey that, the hybrid technology is to be developed for the water distillation which is acceptable and convinced to the society That results to get continuous getting of distillate output of solar still. The aim of this research has been to study the effect of various parameters on performance of double slope solar still to improve efficiency and output of distill water.In this paper a modified photovoltaic thermal (PVT) double slope solar still was designed and fabricated for remote locations this system has been installed at the campus of Gandhinagar Institute of Techanology, motibhoyan In Photovoltaic operated DC water pump has been used between solar still and photovoltaic integrated flat plate collector to rotate the water through collector and pass it to the solar still. In this paper comparision between active and passive solar still with same water level depth 0.025m and compare the experimental readings. Maximum distillate output of 3.123 L/m2/day was obtained by active solar still and passive solar still maximum distillate output of 2.817 L/m2/day with a water depth of 0.025m on both side of solar still.
Keywords- Hybrid Photovoltaic thermal, double slope solar still active and passive
