Abstract

Photovoltaic based refrigeration vehicle is to use the energy derived from the solar power units installed in vehicle to support the power needed for the refrigeration function. It provides the renewable power for the power usage instead of the refrigerator is powered from the International Combustion engine that is not green. The technology include the development of photovoltaic for this application, the driver system for the refrigerator compressor and the battery system. The system prototype has been developed and performance is able to provide refrigeration to -24 deg C. It is ready for production.
