  1. 1. MODELING AND ANALYSIS OF A SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC ASSISTED ABSORPTION REFRIGERATION SYSTEM Presented by Dr. Aritra Ganguly Assistant Professor Department of Mechanical Engineering Bengal Engineering and Science University, Shibpur Howrah, West Bengal-711103 IV th Presented at International Conference on Advances in Energy Research

  3. 3. INTRODUCTION  Air-conditioning has now become an integral part of modern life not only from the view point of luxurious comfort, but also as a necessity in places, where the weather condition is hostile.  Conventional VCR-based air-conditioning systems are most common in domestic applications.  Large power consumption by the compressor, in view of present trend towards energy conservation, is a matter of serious concern.  Harmful effects on the environment by the use of synthetic refrigerants and lack of knowledge about the use of natural replacements are also worrying factors.  Use of vapor absorption based system offers an attractive alternative to technologists. 3
  4. 4. PROBLEMS OF VAPOUR COMPRESSION SYSTEM • • Poor performance at part load condition. • Necessity to superheat the refrigerant leaving the evaporator before entering compressor • Fig.1: Vapour Compression System Large power consumption of compressor especially during start. Harmful effects of synthetic refrigerant on environment.
  5. 5. ADVANTAGES OF VAR SYSTEM  Operated by low-grade thermal energy, instead of high-grade electrical energy  Noise free operation & less maintenance requirement.  Absence of compressor — no problems with rotary component.  Can operate at reduced evaporator temperature and pressure.  The performance is marginally influenced under part load condition.  The system can be built in very high capacities, even above 1000 TR.  The system can be used where the electricity is difficult to obtain or is expensive. 5
  6. 6. OBJECTIVE OF THE PRESENT WORK  Present work conceptualizes the use of solar photovoltaic modules for powering a LiBr-H2O absorption system for a cooling load of 0.5 TR.  A mathematical model has been developed for the LiBr-H2O absorption refrigeration system as well as its power system.  Performance analysis of the VAR as well as the power system for representative days of various seasons of a climatic cycle.  Computation of cumulative daylong electrical energy 6 supplied to and discharged from the battery.

  18. 18. CONCLUSION • • • • • A model for a solar photovoltaic powered LiBr-H 2O absorption refrigeration system with battery back-up has been developed for a cooling load of 0.5 TR. The performance of the system has been analyzed for various seasons of a full climatic cycle considering weather data for the place as input. The study revealed that fifty two number of modules (CEL Make PM 150) each having two modules in series along with a battery bank of 1200 Ah ( 6 x 200 Ah) can power the system in a standalone manner. There is a considerable surplus of electrical energy in the battery throughout the year which can meet the requirement of energy deficit hours of the day satisfactorily. The surplus is found to be the maximum in May. The study thus reinforces the viability of a standalone LiBr-H 2O absorption system which can meet its own energy needs through solar photovoltaic modules and also cater to the energy requirements of the 18 surrounding community.
