Design and performance evaluation of supplemental air supplied charcoal stove

Improved charcoal stoves are known to generally develop high thermal efficiencies, but most generate appreciable level of gas emissions which has made them unsuitable for use withinresidential buildings. In order to eliminate this constraint, a supplemental air supply power pack wasintroduced to improve charcoal stove thermal and aesthetic performance. This paper described theexperimental setup, test procedures and results showing optimized performance. Comparisonbetween performance character...
