The thesis discusses the performance analysis of an active solar desalination system with boosting mirrors. The variables used in this work are solar intensity, glass cover inlet temperature, glass cover outlet temperature, basin temperature. Numerous literatures and experimental results are available in active and passive solar desalination. The fresh water output is increased considerably by using an active solar desalination system. In this work active and passive desalination systems with and without booster mirror are compared. Here an active solar desalination system with air pump is used. The performance of the active and passive solar stills with and without boosting mirror is studied and their efficiency is also compared. The experiment is carried out during the summer climatic conditions of Kerala.
