چکیده
  In the present work, a forced convective hybrid photovoltaic thermal (PVT) solar dryer assisted with an evacuated tube collector (ETC) is set up to investigate the thin layer drying of potato slices.  The drying experiment is compared with the traditional sun drying method without PVT system under the meteorological conditions of Thanjavur, Tamilnadu.  The initial moisture content of potato slices used for the study is 91% (wb). The drying experiment was carried out at different air temperature levels of 50, 55 and 60 °C.  Nine numerical models are used to study the drying kinetics ...  بیشتر
