Desalination using a parabolic-trough concentrator
(Allerton Press Inc., 2012)
There are presented desalination results by using a parabolic-trough concentrator (PTC) device of 5.5 m2, 0.7 m of line focal distance and aligned in the East—West direction. The length of the PTC is 2.5 m and its rectangular ...
Design and construction of a fresnel linear distiller
(Allerton Press, Inc., 2014)
It was designed a Fresnel linear distiller based on optical calculations obtained from taking into account Lima's latitude value, Earth inclination angle and heat absorber cavity's dimensions. The 5.6 m^sup 2^ reflective ...
Comparison between solar distillers with and without solar concentrator
(Allerton Press, Inc., 2016)
In order to desalinate sea water by only solar energy using they were designed and built three distillers in which experimental measurements were taken to calculate production, performance and cost. Distillers by solar ...
Preliminary overview and evaluation of a stepped solar distiller with internal reflective walls and borosilicate vacuum tubes
(Elsevier BV, 2017)
The present study demonstrates that the current use of stepped solar distillers can be enhanced to increase seawater desalination. To this end, we designed a stepped solar still with internal reflective walls and attached ...
Development of a Fuzzy Logic-Based Solar Charge Controller for Charging Lead–Acid Batteries
The design and implementation of a solar charge controller for lead–acid batteries is intended to supplement a component of the water purification module of the water treatment unit for natural disaster relief. This unit ...
Treatment of irrigation water infested with nematodes using a solar photoreactor
(Desalination Publications, 2020)
The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of the disinfection of irrigation water loaded with the plant-parasitic nematode Meloidogyne incognita using a solar photoreactor. The photoreactor was comprised of a ...
Ultraviolet concentration factor of a truncated compound parabolic concentrator under different weather conditions
(Pleiades Publishing, 2020)
This study presents the results of ultraviolet radiation measurement in a truncated compound parabolic concentrator. The measurements were performed by using of a portable ultraviolet sensor both inside and outside the ...
