Design and Development of Solar Powered Air Cooler

Vijaykumar Kalwa | Dr. R. Prakash

Abstract: The present air cooling methods are evaporative coolers; air conditioning; fans and dehumidifiers. But running these products need a source called electricity. The producing of electricity is ultimately responsible for hot and humid conditions i. e. global warming. In hot and humid conditions the need to feel relaxed and comfortable has become one of few needs and for this purpose utilization of systems like air-conditioning and refrigeration has increased rapidly. These systems are most of the time not suitable for villages due to longer power cut durations and high cost of products. Solar power systems being considered as one of the path towards more sustainable energy systems; considering solar-cooling systems in villages would comprise of many attractive features. This technology can efficiently serve large latent loads and greatly improve indoor air quality by allowing more ventilation while tightly controlling humidity. Despite increasing performance and mandatory energy efficiency requirements; peak electricity demand is growing and there is currently no prevalent solar air cooling technology suited to residential application especially for villages; schools and offices. This project reviews solar powered air cooler for residential and industrial applications.
