The gray correlation analysis is employed to analyze the effect of the row number of thermal storage tubes, the air circulation rate and the air temperature on efficiency of wood drying in solar drying system with phase change material (PCM) thermal storage, the relative order of influencing factors on wood drying process is determined. It indicated that air temperature is the 1st key influencing factor in the solar drying system, followed by the air circulation rate, and then the row number of thermal storage tubes. This result is of practical significance for the optimization of the drying process.
