Simulation results indicate that the MEB solar pond system is viable for desalination of seawater in an arid environment with performance ratio reaching more than twice the amount than that in a conventional system, provided that optimum parameters of steam supply temperature, size ratio of pond to the MEB system, number of effects, and number of regenerative feed heaters are used.
