Results & Inferences

The thermal storage efficiency of the solar pond depends on salt concentration and time at which it is focused to irradiance. The conclusion from the above experimental observation is, increase in concentration increases the temperature as well as the thermal efficiency. During the experimentation, water gets evaporated and forms a layer on the surface of transparent sheet, preventing the penetration of radiation through the sheet thus as increase in duration have negative impact on efficiency
