Analysis of Solar-Assisted Cooling Chamber

Mustafa Atmaca, Ahmet Berk Kurtulus, Ibrahim Girgin, and Cuneyt Ezgi
Abstract—In this study, prototype product cooling chamber which has 1 m³ volume have been designed. This cooling chamber is suitable Eurovent SC2 conditions and works between 0°C and +4°C. The system was run with electricity obtained by means of photovoltaic solar panels. Comparison of efficiency was made between cities of Istanbul and Mersin which are different annual solar radiation values. Photovoltaic systems do not have any moving equipment, so the longest life provide with minimal maintenance. In addition, these systems don’t produce greenhouse gases or other types of gas. Therefore, using of this energy will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and will decrease electricity costs for the country and the world.

Index Terms—Solar energy, cooling, photovoltaic panel.
