Abstract

A passive double basin solar still and active double basin solar still coupled with ETC in lower basin of solar still were studied in this paper. These solar stills were fabricated by similar materials and performed at same atmospheric conditions. The basin area of both the solar still was of same size (0.49 m2). The higher performance given by active double basin solar still over passive double basin solar still was due to the transfer of heat energy by ETC tubes to lower basin water of active still. The increase in energy efficiency by 42.10 % and productivity by 48. 53 % with use of ETC in lower basin of solar still.
