Abstract

Time consumption for water desalination process and the impracticality of design is a drawback for a normal solar still. There are cases where some small island in Malaysia depends only on water well as the main water supply. The purpose of this study is to design and develop a solar powered desalination system which is less time consuming and cost effective. A solar powered desalination integrated with a thin sheet of Fresnel lens was designed and developed to overcome the problem which occurs in a normal solar still. Three conceptual designs has been developed using CAD software and being evaluated using house of quality (HOQ). The prototype is being tested using three types of water samples which are sea water, tap water and river water. The water samples are exposed to sunlight to allow the desalination process throughout the day and the amount of clean water produced are measured every hour. Each types of water produces different amount of clean water. Hence, the addition of Fresnel lens is known to increase the amount of clean water produced during desalination process.
