This is a performance model about Flat Plate Solar Collector (FPC) with the assistance of the Solar Still Desalination Process. In this FPC performance model, the user will be able to discover the effect of the operating conditions (solar radiation, ambient temperature, feed flow rate, inlet temperature, etc... ) on the performance of the FPC. The system's total area and design aspects will be kept known for that purpose. The following parameters can be calculated:
2-Overall losses.
3-Pressure losses.
4-Outlet temperature.
5-Exergy analysis.

For the solar still distillation unit, the user can calculate the still performance based on some general parameters. Area and design limits are considered known. User will be able to calculate the following:
1-Temperatures, oC.
2-Heat transfer coeff's.
4-Energy equations.


**MatLab-SimuLink should be used to run the model.
