In the current study, 25% incorporating PVT hybrid CPC collector double slope solar still is using Al2O3 nanoparticles underwent energy matrices analysis and life cycle conversion efficiency (LCCE). With the aid of an analytical programfed into MATLAB, the analysis is conducted on an annual basis based on the atmospheric conditions in New Delhi. The IMD in Pune, India, provided the input data needed for the numerical computations. The average annual energy output will be calculated using energy and exergy, then evaluated. This will reveal that the average annual yield is 8.5%, the average energy payback time is 16.16%, the average energy payback factor is 13.91%, and the average life cycle cost conversion efficiency is 7.15% higher. Therefore it is obvious the proposed system is better on the basis of following parameters i.e. annual yield, energy matrices such as efficiency of life cycle cost (LCCE), factor of energy payback (EPF), energy payback time (EPT) than previous system. The proposed hybrid system can be met the future requirement of potable water as well as electricity.



We can access a very low percentage of water from the ground. Therefore, there is a need to develop potable water and self-sustainable systems. Water purification is required due to polluted water to freshwater throughout the world. Consumption of polluted water is increasing death rates by increasing diseases in human beings. In present days, system availability is not self-sustainable. Electricity is needed which generates it causes pollution. Therefore, the better solution is a renewable energy source that can reduce the potable water problem.

Numerous studies on passive and active solar stills have been conducted, according to the current literature survey. However, not much investigation on active solar still filled with water-based nanofluids was studied. Based on energy and exergy, Dharamveer et al. studied a hybrid double slope. No scholars have examined the economic, and environmental, using nanofluid. Furthermore, no studies have been conducted for CPC, ETC double slope basin type solar distiller using nanofluid. Thus, the proposed study will examine the impacts of active solar still double slope with CPC and filled with water containing Al2O3 nanofluid on energy matrices based such as energy payback time, energy payback factor, life cycle cost conversion efficiency, and productivity, of solar desalination systems will be thoroughly examined. The effectiveness of the suggested approach will also be evaluated in comparison to the findings of past studies.



To determine the following objectives the methodology is adopted as energy matrices analysis of hybrid solar distiller basin type double slope with heat exchanger using Al2O3 nanoparticles.


System Description

Working of double slope solar desalination incorporating PVT with CPC collector using nanoparticles (N-PVT-CPC-DS-HE) is shown. Representation of solar still is followed the greenhouse principle. The parameters used for the distiller unit are given in Table 1 and Table 2. The basin of the solar distiller is connected in series with N-CPC and incorporated with a helically coiled heat exchanger. Solar radiation received on the glass cover is transferred to the water surface and thereafter absorbed by the surface. Later on, reflected water received heat on the top cover and rest portion and then move to the liner where the maximum amount absorbed and liner temperature increased and transfer this heat to water. Thus the temperature of water in the basin is increased and water gets evaporated. Collectors also heat the water in the basin. Water is heated and evaporates in this manner. The distillate trickles forward to the passage attached to the bottom side as the vapor reaches the interior face of the condenser, where film-wise condensation takes place. Then, the beaker receives the distilled water that was siphoned off.

Fig. 1 represents 25% PVT incorporating hybrid solar still. Collectors are put south facing at an angle of 45º which are connected in series as the input of the second collector is attached to the first collector output. Radiation that falls on the collector directly gets absorbed and beam irradiation is reflected on the parabolic concentrator. Similarly, irradiation falls on PV modules that generate electricity which is further used for operating pumps (D.C) and access energy can be further used for any electrical appliances according to need. Table 2 represents the specifications of the proposed system. The inclination angle of the system is 30º and the orientation of the system is the southern face. The basin liner is absorbed maximum radiation which falls on the glass cover. The basin fluid gets heat from the heat exchanger through Al2O3 nanoparticles. As per a prior study, it is obvious that a helically coiled heat exchanger is more effective than any other design. The Al2O3 nanoparticles exchange more heat in active solar still because it covers more surface area due to increasing volume due to heat exchanger. The system gets thermal energy via a combination of double-slope basins incorporating with PVT-CPC collector unit and it absorbs heat externally from a collector and internally from a basin. Basin water temperature increases via heat exchanger nanoparticles. Ultimately by releasing latent heat the vapor gets condensed, and collected at the lower end of the inclined glass cover of the basin.

This sort of system produced electricity as well as potable water. The other quality of this sort of system is i.e. low maintenance, easy to install, and useful for large and small demands of potable water as well as industrial purpose. Lot of advantages of such a system but in this work, we emphasize producing potable water only therefore according to making the system self-sustainable the PVT is provided otherwise 50%, 75%, and 100% can also be used. 

Though, the proposed system-A is compared with the previous System-B based on basin water temperature, inside glass cover temperature, water outlet temperature, the overall thermal energy of collectors, overall exergy, overall electrical exergy, and potable water amount. Sedimentation possibility in nanofluid is more. Therefore nanoparticles size leads to a change in aggregation. The value of size matters to change in aggregation. Later on, more sophisticated equipment is needed to remove it.

Methodology to be Adopted

The following steps are included in the approach used to study the suggested system (Fig. 2):


The proposed systems for the yearly are calculated using the Lui-Jordon formula for global and beam irradiation. Calculate daily solar radiation further by multiplying the number of days given in a month by the number of clear, hazy, hazy, cloudy, and cloudy days.


The temperature of basin water is calculated based on hourly, monthly, and annual data, and all settings are tuned to maximize the collector’s output temperature.


Energy matrices such as efficiency of life cycle cost, Factor energy payback, energy payback time, and productivity have been evaluated.


Comparing proposed systems to the prior system using numerically computed values.



The solar irradiation on a flat area and surroundings temperature have been computed using IMD Pune data, India. By entering the pertinent data in MATLAB, the Liu and Jordan formula may be used to determine how much radiation was applied to N-PVT-CPCs. The values of beam radiation Ib, solar radiation Eastside ISE, Westside ISW, and ambient temperature Ta in kW/m2 and ºC, respectively, are shown in Fig. 3. Below Fig.4 shows a variation of the thermal exergy month-wise of proposed system-A.


Energy matrices and a life cycle cost conversion analysis are required for the hybrid active double slope solar distiller unit

Embodied energy (Ein), the conversion efficiency of the life cycle (LCCE), energy payback factor (EPF), and energy payback time for (N-PVT-DS-FPC-HE) and (N-PVT-DS-CPC-HE) are shown in Fig. 5, Fig. 6, and Fig. 7 for 15, 20 and 30 years respectively.

The number of energy matrices based on energy and exergy for proposed system-A is found that system-A is better to system-B. EPT based on energy and exergy is 16.16% and 17.84% higher, respectively. EPF based on energy and exergy is relatively less13.91% and 14.88%, respectively. LCCE based on energy and exergy is appreciably greater for system-A than system-B: 5.55%, 6.38%, and 7.15% for 15, 20, and 30 years of life considered, respectively.


Economic analysis is required to determine whether hybrid active solar still uses Nanoparticles (Al2O3)

It is economically feasible for system-A and System-B annually. Total yearly cost, fixed annual cost, yearly maintenance cost, and yearly water generation for system-A and system-B are shown during 30 years, at respective interest rates of 1%, 3%, and 5% respectively are represented in Fig. 8, and Fig. 9.

The cost of distillation relies on the rate of interest, as results over 30 years are shown in Fig.8. While the cost of distillate will reduce as system life increases, the price of distillate will climb annually as interest rates rise. For system-A and system-B, the cost of distillate is 0.69, 0.96, and 1.27 (/kg), and 0.72, 1.012, and 1.33 (/kg), respectively, over 30 years at interest rates of 1%, 3%, and 5%. According to the cost of distillation, it is concluded that the proposed system-A performs better than system B.



The proposed system and previous system performance have been studied using characteristic equations and Al2O3 nanoparticles and found better than the previous system.



The following conclusions are made by the annual analysis of the proposed systems with Al2O3 nanoparticles. 

The proposed system-A gives better annual performance than system-B based on thermal exergy, energy, yield is 8.5%, and productivity 5.17% greater with Al2O3 nanoparticles. 

Al2O3 nanoparticles-based system-A gives better results on annual performance and economics as compared to system-B. 

Based on thermal energy, thermal exergy, energy, and exergy-based, Energy payback time (EPT) is 16.16%, Energy payback factor (EPF) is 13.91%, Efficiency of life cycle cost (LCCE) is 7.15% greater than the previous research, it is found that system-A outperforms system-B (previous).

System-A has a lower distillation cost than System B (previous). The yearly cost of distillate for systems A and B is 0.69, 0.96, and 1.27 (/kg), and 0.72, 1.012, and 1.33 (/kg), respectively, based on a 30-year basis at interest rates of 1%, 3%, and 5%. According to distillate cost, it is discovered that system-A performs better than system B.
