Abstract

Abstract The thermal behavior of a small-scale salinity-gradient solar pond has been studied in this paper. The model of heat conduction equation for the non-convective zone has been solved numerically with the boundary conditions of the upper and lower convective zones. The variation of the solar radiation, during a year, and its attenuation in the depth of the pond has been discussed. The wall shading area for a vertical wall square pond has been elaborated and its effect on the reduction of the sunny area has been included in the model. The temperature variation of the storage zone has been calculated theoretically and compared with the experimental results. The sensitivity analysis demonstrates the importance of the side and bottom insulation and the thickness of the non-convective zone, as well as the wall shading effect on the performance of the pond. The application of several loading patterns gives an overall efficiency of 10% for the small pond
