Description The  present  study  is  concerned  with  desalinating  the  saline  water,  using  the  humidification  dehumidification method. An  open  air  open water  cycle  is  chosen, whilst  forced  air circulation  is  applied.  The system utilizes water and air heating technique.  The  energy  required  for  heating  the  air  is  provided  by  solar  radiation, while the required energy for heating the water is provided by electricity. The goals of this study are: a)  To study different existing systems in the literature; b)  To review the governing equations for each segment of the desalination unit; and c)  To conduct  and  experiment  on  the  above  described  humidification dehumidification desalination unit under North Cyprus winter conditions. The  solar  air  heater placed  to  azimuth  angle  of  -20,  with  a  tilt  angle  of  45 . According  to  the  experiment,  the  optimum  flow  rate  for water  stream  is  4  Lt/min, while  the  air  flow  rate  is  1.5m3/min.  Besides, the inlet water temperature to the evaporator is kept at 55◦c. The maximum productivity of 1.55 Lt/day.m2 is achieved for this condition. The present experiment implies that the maximum productivity is achieved with higher temperature of both air and water streams into the evaporator, higher flow rate for water and lower flow rate for air.
