Abstract
In this work; we were interested in a drying system with displacement of the material to be dried. The practical aspect of this study is the design of a continuous forced convection indirect solar dryer with auxiliary heating to reduce upstream or downstream failure or in the processing environment of agricultural products. In the rest of our work, we focused on the drying of maize, mahogany nuts, shea nuts, by-products resulting from the processing of mangoes. The parameters to be followed in this design are the flow rate and temperature of the coolant. The choice of devices of this equipment is made according to these two parameters. The particularity of this design is that the electrical elements will be powered by photovoltaic energy which is interconnected with conventional energy to avoid any form of load shedding. At the end of our study, this resolution of the failure in the processing chain of agricultural products will increase the value added of the agricultural sector.
