Abstract
This work represents a novel method for producing sweet water from effluent wastewater and generating electricity using renewable energy sources, solar energy specifically. Performance of a closed solar basin, which is jointed to photovoltaic cell and is equipped by nano plate for producing sweet water from effluent saline water of the Mobin petrochemical complex, is studied in this paper. The effect of nano plate on wastewater temperature, energy consumption and the amount of fresh water is considered, experimentally. Also, capability of photovoltaic cells to generate electricity is reported due to insolation rate during a year. Highest and lowest amounts of fresh water are reported to present design parameters of solar basin capacity. The received energy, efficiency factor and error function are formulated in this paper. The regression for error function formula is 0.772.
