Abstract

Because of the compactness, higher reliability, and energy efficiency of a vapor compression refrigeration machine, solar photovoltaic (PV)-powered vapor compression refrigeration and cooling systems provide a great potential for various cooling applications. Recent progress of solar cooling based on PV panels is reviewed in this chapter. The main components, configurations, and classifications of systems are described. The advantages and disadvantages of PV-powered solar cooling systems are discussed. The important research aspects of PV refrigeration and PV air conditioning in ...
