Membrane distillation (MD) is a thermal driven evaporation process that involves a transport of water vapor through porous membrane. The driving force of the process is supplied by the vapor pressure difference between the two membrane sides. The solar driven MD process is a feasible technique for brackish water desalination. Combined solar photovoltaic and thermal tests with same solar radiation were performed on the PV panels. For the PV panel, used in the solar driven MD system, its output power will decrease with the increase of its temperature. In order to avoiding the decrease of output power, a heat exchanger...
