Design and Analysis of Parabolic Solar Cooker
The parabolic solar cooker concentrates solar radiation and uses reflective materials to transform it produces heat energy. The correct selection of reflective things significantly affects the efficiency regarding the parabolic solar cooker. There are three distinct types of reflective materials that are significantly compared in this research. These are Mylar tape, aluminium foil, and stainless steel. These three types of cookers were put to the test in a variety of weather conditions and produced a wide range of temperatures. The use of reflective Mylar tape allowed for the maximum temperature of 91.6 °C to be reached. Moreover, the greatest temperatures of 78.4 °C and 71.1 °C were attained using stainless steel and aluminium foil, respectively. It has been determined via testing and analysis of various reflective materials that Mylar tape has the ability to reflect the most heat in the shortest length of time.
