Abstract

Energy consumption for cooking is unavoidable and it contributes a major part in sharing of total primary energy consumption in India. Hence it needs an alternative energy source for this purpose. The use of the fossil fuels such as kerosene and LPG for cooking is expensive therefore traditional cooking is replacing by solar cooker which utilizes the solar energy to cook the food. Solar energy is non consumptive and non-polluting fuel. Solar cookers have long been presented as an interesting solution to the worlds problem of dwindling fuel. Solar cooker could reduce annual life cycle costs by up to 40% and environmental impacts by up to 65% including greenhouse emissions when compare with microwaves. The solar cooker have relevant place in the present fuel consumption pattern. The objective is to enhance the heat transfer rate and reduce the cooking timing. The performance and the parameters obtained from newly designed solar cooker are to be excellent than that obtained from previously known solar cooker. This performance of the solar cooker has been checked under the local climate conditions to observe its efficient satisfactory results.
