Efficiency Improvement of a Dual PV Water Pumping System on a Desert Well by Solar Matched Load Control
Full Paper(PDF, 402KB)
The aim of the present study is to introduce the thermal production from the biomss, the heat exchange of its production to the working fluid, and higher efficiency thermal fluid transport and the corresponding modification and advanced method. It is found that (i) the production of N2O is suppressed in the lower mix ratio region, i.e., under lean burn condition, (ii) overall heat transfer coefficient for herringbone plate is higher than the other plate shapes and an amplification of frictional pressure drop is substantially suppressed for the separate herringbone plate, and (iii) enhancement heat transfer performance is caused by suspending nanoparticles in pure working fluid.
