Tushar Banerjee, Akashdeep Negi, Rajesh P Verma, D.B. Singh, Ms Resham Taluja.


This research article deals with the numerical investigation for the sensitivity analysis of four different parameters (1) mass flow rate (2) number of collectors (3) water depth and (4) packing factor on single slope solar still connected in series with partially covered photo voltic thermal integrated with N compound parabolic collector. The weather data has been collected for the Dehradun region for the month of April from Indian metrological department Pune. The sensitivity analysis was performed in MATLAB 2015 software by varying one parameter at a time and other parameters are kept constant. The result shows the productivity and electrical power output is most sensitive for no. of collectors. The average value of sensitivity for productivity of water of system by varying mass flow rate, no. of collectors, water depth and packing factor was found to be 0.298,0.331,0.143 and 0.078 respectively while the average value of sensitivity for electric power of the system by varying mass flow rate, no. of collectors, water depth and packing factor was found to be 0.011,0.78,0.008 and 0.920 respectively.

Key words: Single Slope Solar Still, Photo Voltic Thermal, Compound Parabolic Collector, Sensitivity.
