Abstract

Solar Dryer cum Cooker (SOC) device for cooking and drying was designed and fabricated at Department of Renewable Energy Sources, C.T.A.E., Udaipur and tested for no load condition and full load condition in winter and summer to find out its performances. F1, F2 values of solar cooker were 0.119, 0.120 and 0.32, 0.30 for winter and summer. Time required for rice, tur dal, moong dal was 90, 130 and 100 minutes in winter 60, 90 and 75 minutes in summer. The efficiency for drying maize, wheat and potato was found to be 15.55%, 10.89% and 10.42%, for solar dryer in winter, 12.97%, 8.90% and 10.16% for solar dryer in summer respectively. The total cost of SOC was Rs. 2715.
