This study also investigated performance indices (drying efficiency, pick-up efficiency, and evaporative capacity).
Evaporative capacity was used in this study as a performance index for solar dryers according to Jannot and Coulibaly [26].
where E: evaporative capacity (kg/h), mda: mass flow rate of dry air (kg/s), [X.sub.2m]: dryer outlet absolute humidity, and [X.sub.a]: ambient absolute humidity.
Evaporative capacity, which ranged from 0.13 to 2.36 kg/h, with an average of 0.97 kg/h, was calculated using (6).
