Solar energy is likely to be the energy of the future; solar ponds, especially salinity gradient solar ponds (SGSPs), facilitate simple and cost-effective thermal energy storage. Research on maximising their potential is of particular relevance to developing countries, which often have an abundance of solar energy and a critical need for increased power supplies. For this research, a theoretical model for heat transfer in a SGSP was developed to study the energy balance in the three separate zones: the upper convective zone (UCZ), lower convective zone or storage zone (LCZ) and non-convective zone (NCZ). The model showed that the LCZ temperature could reach more...
