Abstract

The sun’s free, zero-emissions energy produces no household air pollution, preserving the environment as people cook food and pasteurize drinking water. In recent years, much experience has been acquired with the solar cooking systems described. In present work a review has been made to study conducted researches in the field of solar cookers. Experimental, theoretical, numerical analyses are included to compare operation and efficiency of solar cookers. Also the article reviews and summarizes findings of conducted researches on factors influence solar cooker use rates.
