Solar Powered Air Conditioner
Summer is the time when you wished you had an Air Conditioner. But, you would rather detest the idea because of the staggering electricity bills you would get once you start using the AC. And it would be a miracle if you could use an AC without paying those hefty electricity bills. In that case, it seems a miracle has just happened!
How about utilizing the free energy of the sun to power up your AC?
The hottest months usually, happens to be also the sunniest. You can use the scorching summer heat to actually remove the heat from your room with the help Â Photovoltaics (PVs) to power your AC. Photovoltaics are collection of cells which have photovoltaic material that makes use solar radiation to develop direct current electricity. For achieving the best performance the PVs are connected to a solar tracker so as to align themselves towards the sun to receive the maximum amount of solar radiation. The use of a solar tracker would improve the performance of the PVs by whopping 50% in summer.
The use of Concentrated Solar power systems (CSP ) further enhances the utilization of solar power by making use of mirrors to concentrate solar energy onto a photovoltaic cell.Â Since CSP systemsÂ are bigger in construction and expensive they are seldom used to generate power for an air conditioner.
A typical air conditioner consists of the following
1)Â Â Â Â Â Condensing coil
2)Â Â Â Â Â Expansion valve
3)Â Â Â Â Â Evaporator Coil
4)Â Â Â Â Â Compressor
Once, the direct current developed by the PVs is fed to the Air Condition unit, you have an Air Conditioner which works on Solar Panels and you can be free from the tension of electricity bills draining your pockets.
Excess power if developed can be used to power other electrical appliance or sold back to a power grid! Ultimately the success of the system would depend upon the cost effectiveness.
Watch the Video:
The cost of the solar panel (240 V) itself is about $650. The cost of the air conditioner and other accessories will come around another $600. So the total cost will be about $1200 but if you can obtain second hand materials it will be much economical. (The cot estimation is approximate)
i dont know why most of you interested in this project…..lets you have purchased 240V solar panels now you would need about 80 Ah battery of 12 volts which only run if sun light is available…….mean to operate for 24 hours you would need to purchase solar panel of about 2.5kwh which cost 1500$
I would like to be an expert on this project , I need more knowledge
please tell me….what is the cost of project with full details!!!!
sir i am intrested in this project please send full details to my mail please sir
how to download this project
hi actually i want to do prototype on same applications is there anyone already done it just send d deatils on my id guys
SIR, PLZ SEND SOLAR AC FULL DETAILS
the idea is so good.
Need to more information for solar power air conditioner…..
What is the initial cost difference between this and same operated by electricity
Whatever is the initial cost difference between this and same operated by electricity
I want to no the full cost of project
hi sir plz me send me full information about project like estimation cost ,componets requried ..etc
superb,but i want more clarity
Pls sir I want full details about this project
hi sir ! i am interested to make this solar air conditioner for my B.E, Final yr project in mechanical engineeringâ€¦
can u pls guide me in this project? i need a guide to help me right from the basics & i wish to do this! pls help me!
1st also tel me the minimum cost for this project
I am interested in this project. May you please send me the proper detail of this project.
wow nice project.
I want full details of the solar power air conditioner. Please send to my mail details about this project. Thank youâ€¦â€¦
Sir, I am guiding students on RAC projects. Would you give me its complete details of p oject with specs
sir i want to take it this as my project so please give me the details of this project and research paper on my email id
i want details of this project with estimated cost.please send me as early as possible.
please provide me all detail regarding the project .
recently I have personal interview in ongc & iocl but i am not make any project in my college life that time i need a project.provide me all necessary detail about the project plz help me.
this is a nice project nd i want to do this projects so plz can u send me the details of this projec
Have you ever thought about including a little bit
more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
Nevertheless imagine if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this website could definitely be one of the best in its field.
but we need detail
Its very interesting idea.Hope you can send the whole project
how borehole thermal energy system works? is it applicable to India(as per our economy)
