Design and Construction of a Wooden Solar Box Cooker with Performance and Efficiency Test.
Journal of Basic and Applied Scientific Research, 1 (7).
A wooden solar box cooker was successfully constructed with cheap and locally available material with
efficiency of .From the various experiments that were carried out, the highest temperature gotten
both on the ground floor and at the top of the roof was 720C both on the days with air temperature of
380C and 350C respectively.
Efficiency was found to increase with decreasing temperature difference between collector temperature
and ambient temperature. Increase in temperature does not necessarily lead to increase in efficiency.
Efficiency decreased with decreasing solar radiation.
