A Review Paper on Techniques of Enhancing the Efficiency and Productivity of Solar StillAuthor : Akash A. Lokhande and S.M.Shaikh
Volume 7 No.1 January-June 2018 pp 23-28
The present paper deals with a review on different techniques that improves the efficiency, productivity and performance of solar still. The different techniques are used separately to improve the performance of solar still. If we combine two or more different efficiency and productivity improvement techniques in a single unit of solar still then efficiency and productivity of solar still will absolutely improve. And the present work deals with effect of combining the two or more different efficiency and productivity improvement techniques that increases the performance of solar still.
