Abstract:
ABSTRACT Design and development of solar powered cooking stove" is about using solar energy for cooking purpose aiming commercialization of the product. As per the increase in the use of solar energy, these types of innovation may support enhancement of small scale businesses. The solar energy is available free of cost and lead us to save our non-renewable sources of energy which are getting vanished due to high demand. This problem is also seen in the cooking application, the currently used source of energy is LPG instead of that solar energy converted into electrical energy achieves the purpose. This research utilizes solar energy for conversion into electrical energy with the help of solar P-V panels. It is then stored into 72 Volts 42 Amh battery packs. This DC power is supplied to the metal coil, which gets heated and later forcefully convicted to the utensil by a blower. Temperature of the coil is varied with the help of regulator. The overall system consists of a solar panel, storage unit, temperature controller and heating coil with blower which is put into structure like a mini canteen. This energy used for a cooking place to make different snacks, hot drinks, etc. The results are such that, batteries get fully charged up to 72 Volts in 5 hours and it runs continuously for 3 hours. The maximum temperature range achieved is 1600c -1800c in less than 10 minutes, which is sufficient for all cooking types such as boiling, baking and frying. The coil gets cooled in short time making it safer to use. It completely replaces present stoves as it is convenient and efficient for commercial as well as home applications. It takes less time for cooking and it has low maintenance cost. This research cuts the cost required for such fuel consumption and uses solar energy which is available for free of cost. So the research gives varies cooking examples like bhaji, papad, eggs, curry and time required for various operation is less than induction by 40 %.
