Abstract:

Solar energy has prime importance in supply of food and energy to human survival and sustenance. Cooking is the most common way of utilization of solar energy. The scientific community has developed different models of solar cookers and tested their performance in variable climatic conditions of different parts of the world. In this experimentation, parabolic solar cooker with dish concentrator system with a point focus collector having manual sun tracking has been evaluated for its performance in NEH region of India. The procedure for experimentation followed measurement of solar insolation, temperature changes in cooker and ambience atmosphere, relative humidity and wind velocity. The parameters were measured at an interval of 30 minutes from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM each day. The results suggested that highest pot temperature attained without load was 94.5oC and with load was 97.08oC. The efficiency of solar cooker was found to be 37% for experimental site of Sikkim.
