1. Description of the data 1.1 Type of study This is a part of Dissertation work of Master Student at School of Engineering, RK University, Rajkot India 1.2 Types of data This is an experimental data collected from a three-stepped solar still (0.6m × 0.6m) constructed by the student and experiment conducted at Bhavnagar (21.74°N,72.10°E) to yield 2.5 litres/day 1.3 Format and scale of the data The file format is excel, the number of records is presented for the month of April 22 to May 10, 2018. CAD model was used to create the drawing for Solar Still. The experiment was conducted for the same TDS of water daily. These are the initial indicative values. Formats and software enable sharing and long-term validity of data as a part of academic work.


Steps to reproduce

3. Data management, documentation and curation The data corresponding to day, time (hourly) and yield (litre) is noted for two cases for a week time including day and night hours. The brine water was considered for both the cases. This sample was collected from Bhavnagar coastline areas. The purpose of this experiment was to see the effect of PCM on the solar still as the absorber plates had the provision of copper pipe to keep the PCM material. The PCM material used was the commercially available paraffin wax. The two separate sheets are made for this logging the data for the use of PCM and without it. 3.1 Managing, storing and curating data. These data are at present for TDS value of 3500 and it is planned that over and below this TDS value the data can be stored for future investigation. Anyone with this link <> can download the data and append the data by submitting the link to the author or creating a similar data TDS <35000>.
