This book of the NATO Science Series presents the state-of-the-art of Desalination Technologies driven by Renewable Energies, highlighting the results achieved in the research field and presenting the potentialities of such technologies. It provides an up-to-date point-of-reference on the topic, giving an extensive overview of the current status of solar desalination, both from the research and industrial point of view.Two different configurations were tested, one with a direct current (DC) motor and one with a three-phase induction motor. ... more capable of operating with less maintenance and reduces the specific energy consumption. ... A separate speed control of the motors allowed for control of the energy drawn from the PVs for maximum power point tracking and control of the recovery ratio for maximum productanbsp;...
