Photo-Thermal Solar Energy Conversion Device.
Journal of Emerging Trends in Engineering and Applied Sciences (JETEAS), 2 (1).
Photo-thermal solar energy device was constructed using local available materials for producing hot water for
house hold uses. The motivation for this research is to find an alternative source of power for this purpose, since
we have epileptic supply of conventional power in the country. It was observed that intensity of solar radiation
varies with time and the temperature of water produced depended on the amount of solar radiation and the time
of the day as observed from the graphs plotted. We obtained boiling water at 100 degrees Celsius with the
device at Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State. Nigeria.
