Abstract

A fabricated box type solar cooker applications and its designs given here. Two designs of cookers were tested. The first type was a fabricated solar cooker with painted black all side and second type has a battery operated fabricated solar cooker with two coils each of 50Ws arranged in parallel (50W, 100W). These designs were examined under two modes of operations: a solar cooker alone and solar cooker with coils attachment. The cooker alone had recorded average thermal efficiencies of 30.41% at the average solar intensity of the day and the cooker had recorded average thermal efficiencies of 29.7% and 31.9% respectively for 50W and 100W coils with the 12 volt battery supply.
