This is a performance model for solar still distillation by the use of Flat Plate Solar Collector. PCM storage medium is used at the Still bottom. At the same time, heat exchanger coil is used to enhance the still performance. Moreover, the glass cover is cooled down in order to increase the rate of condensation on the glass cover. 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.

In this Flat Plate Solar Collector design model, user will be able to discover the total area based on the assigned thermal load volume. The following paramters can be calculated:
1-Mean plate temperature.
2-FPC total area.
3-Overall losses.

For Dynamic Modeling:

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