This paper includes a theoretical study of energy balance for all parts of new design of solar concentration distiller using a parabolic concentrator with a half-cylinder basin. Our goal is to analyze the thermal efficiency of the new device to use in the Morocco's Rabat-Sale-Kenitra region. The methodology concentrates on solving the thermal collector's energy balance equations whose components are the glass cover, the brackish water and half-cylinder absorber. Numerical resolution of the energy balance equations was performed using a MATLAB code based on the method of 4th order Runge-Kutta. The results show a good theoretical performance of the new device.
