Solar Electric Cooling Systems

Abstract

This chapter covers solar electric cooling systems including the solar photovoltaic (PV) and thermoelectric (TE) systems. Thus, the utilization of solar PV panels coupled with a vapor-compression air-conditioning system is described, and a good amount of information regarding ecological refrigerant's trend is included. Additionally, this chapter presents details referring to TE cooling parameters and formulations of the performance indicators and focuses on the development of TE cooling systems in the recent decade with particular attention on advances in materials and modeling approaches and applications.
