This quantity is the 3rd within the sequence of the e-book entitled, 'Advances in solar power Technology'. the aim of writting this a number of quantity publication is to supply the entire suitable most up-to-date info within the box of solar power (Applied in addition to theoretical) to function the easiest resource fabric at one position. makes an attempt are made to debate subject matters extensive to aid either the scholars (undergraduate, pos- graduate, examine students) and the pros (consulting, layout, contracting firms). The 3rd quantity discusses the heating, agricultural and photovo1taic purposes of solar power. bankruptcy 1 offers with sun cookers, one of many very important software sector for constructing international locations. After discussing the background of sun cookers, 8 kinds of direct sun cookers, different types of field sunlight cookers and sorts of complicated sunlight cookers are mentioned intimately. The functionality experiences carri~d out on direct style and on field variety sun cookers also are awarded. A attempt strategy for ranking a field sort sun cooker is additionally brought. the restrictions and merits of varied cookers are mentioned in short within the bankruptcy. Desalinated water for consuming reasons, for commercial and agricultural functions is needed. the subject of sun Distillation is mentioned intimately in bankruptcy . sun Distillation has a protracted historical past and during this bankruptcy a number of form of sunlight stills like traditional sunlight nonetheless, tilted tray sun nonetheless, wick kind sunlight nonetheless, a number of impact diffusion sunlight nonetheless, multistage flash distillation, etc.

A cradle like cooking platform is made in the oven which helps in keeping the vessel containing food horizontal irrespective of the sun. 20. Few such solar ovens have been installed in villages near Jodhpur (India) for demonstration-cum-test purposes and performance has been found satisfactory. On very clear days, maximum plate temperature in the oven reaches to 350 ~ in summer season and 250°C in winter season. Practically all types of food preparations like cooking, roasting, baking and boiling can be done within 25 to 75 minutes under clear sky conditions.
Steam is produced within an hour of sunrise and will continue to be SOLAR COOKERS 41 produced for the rest of the day as until sunset. Thus it is possible to cook both the midday meal and the evening meal. Food left in the cooker will remain hot for several hours after sunset. This solar cooker is a slow cooking device, and is best suited for foods that require long slow boiling, such as stews, cereals and vegetables. A similar solar steam cooker with an optimized flatplate collector has been designed by Garg and Thanvi and tested extensively at Jodhpur.
5 cm width, which are finally anodized are used. The angle of the strip, an' to get concentration, can be calculated with the help of the following formula: 1 2 (--F Where RN is the distance of the strip from the centre of the reflector and F is the focal length. This step reflector is mounted on a stand for its manual adjustment towards the sun. The cooking pot can be placed on a wire netting fixed to a steel ring. 0 litre of water comes to boiling point within 30 minutes under clear and calm sky conditions.
