Abstract
This paper presents a numerical model to analyse the thermal and fluid dynamic behaviour of a mechanical vapour compression MVC desalination system, which uses renewable energy to supply the electricity required by the whole system. The reason to use renewable energy is that the MVC desalination system has been though to work in remote places, where an electric grid is not available. The transient and steady-state of the desalination system are evaluated taking into account the variability of th...
