Solar energy is widely used for a variety of process heat and electricity generation applications. It is essential to apply solar energy for a wide variety of applications and provide energy solutions by modifying the energy proportion, improving energy stability, increasing energy sustainability, conversion reduction and hence enhance the system efficiency. In the work presented here, a brief study of a few medium temperature solar thermal applications up to 2400C pertaining to domestic and industrial applications has been considered. Typical applications in the range included here are water heating, air drying and dehydration, refrigeration and air conditioning, steam generation system and solar cookers.
A brief description about the solar thermal technology utilised, fundamentals and applications in industry has been presented here.
