Abstract

The Purpose of this thesis work is to design a water distillation system that can purify water from nearly any source, a system that is relatively cheap, portable, and depend only on renewable solar energy. The motivation for this thesis is the limited availability of clean water resources and the abundance of impure water available for the potential conversion into potable water. Two major challenges for human society today are shortage of fresh water and shortage of conventional energy. Solar still is the best method to convert saline, brackish water into fresh water using the unconventional source of energy which is freely and abundantly available in planet earth. The main draw back with conventional basin still is that the productivity is very low. Most important design parameters in flouncing the productivity are optimization of glass inclination, intensity of solar radiation, thickness of glass cover, basin filled with different material, Nano particles mixed with water in the basin, absorber plate area, free surface area of water and depth of water. The main difficulty in conventional still is maintaining mini- mum depth and large surface area of water. Inclined solar still is alternative to increase the surface area of water and maintain minimum depth. Researchers have put efforts to develop various designs of inclined solar stills to maintain the minimum depth of water using wicks, steps in the stills to increase the productivity. In this review, we are attempting to study the present status of different designs used to improve the productivity of solar stills.
