The Industrial drying of green peas with PV strength assistance

Mahendra pratap singh, sonali verma, shanshank kumar, payal rani, samarth singh


A photovoltaic power-helped mechanical dryer has been dissected. The dryer has been analyzed in various atmosphere and working conditions with 3 kg of unpractised peas from 75.6% preparatory dampness substance to 39% last dampness content (w.b.). The effect of differing drying air temperatures at 3 territories (40, 50, and 60°C) and particular air speeds (2 m/s and 4 m/s) was inspected. Drying overall performance was assessed with regard to criteria which include drying kinetics, precise and total energy consumption, and colour and rehydration ratio.
