Abstract

A box-type solar cooker is designed and its thermal performance is analysed experimentally. The cooker tracks the sun in two axes, altitude and sun azimuth, by hand control for hourly periods. The experimental results show that the tested cooker may be assumed suitable in some cooking processes for specific country conditions. Copyright (C) 2002 John Wiley Sons, Ltd.
