By H.P. Garg

This quantity is the 3rd within the sequence of the publication entitled, 'Advances in solar power Technology'. the aim of writting this a number of quantity e-book is to supply the entire correct most recent details 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 issues intensive to aid either the scholars (undergraduate, pos- graduate, study students) and the pros (consulting, layout, contracting firms). The 3rd quantity discusses the heating, agricultural and photovo1taic purposes of solar power. bankruptcy 1 bargains with sun cookers, one of many vital program region for constructing nations. After discussing the heritage of sun cookers, 8 varieties of direct sunlight cookers, varieties of field sunlight cookers and different types of complex sunlight cookers are mentioned intimately. The functionality stories carri~d out on direct variety and on field sort sunlight cookers also are awarded. A attempt technique for ranking a field style sun cooker is additionally brought. the restrictions and merits of assorted cookers are mentioned in short within the bankruptcy. Desalinated water for consuming reasons, for business and agricultural functions is needed. the subject of sunlight Distillation is mentioned intimately in bankruptcy . sunlight Distillation has a protracted historical past and during this bankruptcy a variety of form of sunlight stills like traditional sun nonetheless, tilted tray sun nonetheless, wick sort sun nonetheless, a number of impact diffusion sun nonetheless, multistage flash distillation, etc.

The body of the modified solar oven consists of a well-insulated semicylindrical form, made of sheet aluminium, sheet steel, galvanised iron. Two shells are made and the space between them is filled with insulating materials . The interior shell is painted black, using heat resistant paint. Aluminium sheet is not painted since this will help in concentrating solar radiation on to the pot .

5 atmosphers absolute pressure. By opening a valve the steam goes to the hot plate, gets condensed on the hot plate and thus release the heat of vaporization to the plate. This cooker operates at a very low efficiency and is suitable only for light stewing or water heating and because it works under pressure it may lead to potential safety hazards in the village environment. A similar solar steam cooker is developed at Brace Research Institute, Canada[35,66). In this case the heat from the steam passes directly into a steam box or oven.
