Abstract

Solar energy available throughout the day should be used for processing sea water into fresh water through the application of solar distillation technology. This technology is applied to the people of Indonesia who live on the coast because of lack of clean water for drinking and bathing water and other needs in accordance with their designation. The objectives of this study are: 1) to determine the productivity of solar distillation devices of the type of solar panels by combining transparent glass to produce fresh water. The research method used in this study is the experimental method and action. This research was conducted at the Kupang State Polytechnic Physics Laboratory, Adisucipto Penfui Road, East Nusa Tenggara Province. Materials and tools used in conducting research are: 1) solar panels; 2) inverter; 3) Battery; 4) heater; 5) transparent glass; 6) measuring cup; 7) sea water samples. The results of the study resulted in an average value produced by the design of a combination of solar panels with transparent glass every day is 128 ml / day, the time required is approximately 3 hours for the evaporation process and the average temperature produced is 89 0C. Target output of this study is producing fresh water. The results of this research will be disseminated to the scientific community through publications and seminars
