A 500 gallons per day hybrid desalination plant using wind/solar energy



A 500 gallons per day hybrid desalination plant using wind/solar energy



Sun II Proceedings of the International Solar Energy Society Silver Jubilee Congress, Atlanta, Georgia May 1979 Vol 2 K W Boer and B H Glenn, Editors: 1512-1516



An analysis of a modular wind/solar distillation plant is presented. The design is based on a constant year-round demand of 500 gallons per day. In arid areas where wind power is available, cost analysis shows that the hybrid system is economically feasible compared with electricity which could only be generated from a conventional source such as a diesel engine. Solar stills are of the basin type while the wind energy conversion system is a horizontal axis type.
