Abstract

This study discusses the indirect clothes dryer using solar photovoltaic energy. The dryer is used to dry clothes and is designed to be practical, safe and environmentally friendly. The purpose of this study was to test the performance of an indirect clothes dryer in drying clothes. The results of drying clothes produced in the form of clothes that are ready to be ironed. The clothes dryer under study uses a solar thermal energy source which is converted from solar photovoltaic to charge electric current into the battery. The electric current is changed from DC to AC to turn on the 6-unit heater fan which is installed in a drying cabinet measuring 100 × 60 × 120 cm. The research showed that the solar photovoltaic dryer clothes dryer run well with an average drying room temperature of 40-41°C and could desiccate clothes made of polyester within 45 minutes of drying time.
