Abstract

The theromodynamic analysis of vapor compression desalination system is presented. The use of solar energy to operate the system is proposed. A solar operated system using evacuated tube collectors, storage tank, Rankine power cycle to drive the vapor compression distillation system is outlined together with its thermodynamic analysis. Areas of solar collectors, multi-flow heat exchange, and evaporator are calculated at different values of the evaporator temperature difference. It is found that the area of solar collectors increases with increasing the evaporator temperature difference whereas the evaporator and heat exchanger areas decrease. Also, costs of the different elements are estimated to give an optimum price for the total system at about 5. 2 degree C evaporator temperature difference.
