Abstract: 

In this paper, the effect of base fluid, temperature, solid volume concentration and nanoparticle type on electrical conductivity of nanofluid is reviewed for the first time. The work involves discussing the effect of base fluid, temperature, solid volume concentration and nanoparticle type on electrical conductivity of nanofluid among academic analysis of recent studies. The achievements imply that the electrical conductivity generally increases as temperature and solid volume fraction increases. Moreover it should be mentioned that the influence of temperature improvement is not as effective as the nanoparticles concentrations.
