Abstract : This paper emphasize the effect of salt concentration on thermal energy storage in terms of temperature rise. Increase in temperature at different layers of the solar pond has direct indication on the effect of salt concentration. On experimental set up of solar pond with the salt concentration varied in the range of 160-250g by adding the water stored in the pond is analyzed. The temperature measured at different concentration of salt helps to extract sensible heat which could as energy storage. The analysis is carried out to determine the characteristics of different layers in the solar pond by varying salt concentration. Temperature Vs time behavior of the solar pond on varying concentration of salt is verified experimentally by plotting its characteristics.
