Solar still is an eco-friendly and convenient desalination system that can provide fresh water for remote areas and emergencies. The energy efficiency and productivity of conventional solar still are unsatisfying and need improvement, which requires a deep understanding of the heat and mass transfer process in solar still. In this work, the effect of the inner air circulation on the system’s heat and mass transfer performance and energy efficiency are studied theoretically and experimentally…
