Abstract: Energy is a crucial input in the process of economic, social and industrial development of any nation. During recent decades, energy demand of the world has been expanding persistently at a disturbing rate because of increment in populace, industrialization, transportation and so on. Constant utilization of petroleum products have come about energy emergency and condition corruption at worldwide level. On the numerous options, sunlight based energy is an imperative sustainable power source asset that has the capability of satisfying all energy needs. Some imperative uses of sunlight based energy are sun oriented water warming, sun oriented space warming/cooling, sun based cooking, sun based yield drying, sun based power age and so forth. Least complex technique to use sun oriented radiation is to change over it into warm energy for warming applications by utilizing sunlight based authorities. Sunlight based air Dryer in view of their natural effortlessness are modest and are utilized for some residential and business applications like space warming, trim drying, wood flavoring and so on. In this paper the goal of the CFD stream contemplates is to configuration, test and enhance stream molding gadgets, as suitable, to direct the gas move through the conduit. In this a two-dimensional numerical reenactment of the warmth exchange, Nussult number, Velocity and temperature is by and large directed utilizing the CFD code Fluent Version 14.5. The CFD demonstrating includes numerical arrangements of the protection conditions for mass, force and energy.
