Given the limited mineral resources and the impossibility of using the world’s hydrocarbon reserves in a steady and growing way in the near future, the most important task facing every country is to find a way to prevent the impending energy crisis or alleviate the country’s energy problems. One of the ways to solve the global problems facing humanity is to use renewable energy sources. Based on the above information in this article, a method for analyzing the drying of agricultural products using solar and electricity has been developed. Modern designs of drying devices have been studied. Experimental studies were conducted on the basis of experimental research data, a sample of a solar dryer was constructed, optimal measurements were calculated, and the results of theoretical and experimental studies were presented. The thermotechnical properties of the solar dryer were studied. One of the most pressing issues today is the efficient use of solar energy and, of course, the development of energy-efficient energy-efficient devices, the introduction of the device into practice. The energy device we recommend below allows you to process and harvest agricultural products, fruits and vegetables in a timely manner, ensure the continuity of the drying process, and obtain fast and high-quality dried products with low energy consumption.
