The present work represents a numerical study of a solar desalination system that operates on the humidification-dehumidification (HDH) principle. This system consists essentially of a humidifier integrated into a solar collector and a tubular condenser. A mathematical model governing evaporation and condensation in the desalination unit has been elaborated. This model is based on energy and mass balances at the humidifier and the condenser. The work consists essentially of a parametric study to improve the desalination unit production installed at the faculty of sciences of Bizerte, Tunisia.
