In this work, a mathematical model is proposed to describe the thermal performance of a radiative distiller under transient conditions. The parameters which cause the dynamic variation in the condenser performance are the finite thermal capacity of the radiative condenser panel, effective sky-temperature, ambient temperature, humidity ratio and the condenser overall heat transfer coefficient. The presented model is solved numerically and the effects of the design and operating conditions on the condenser performance are investigated.
