Abstract

Refrigerated storage, which is believed to be best method for storing the fruits and vegetables in fresh form, is not available in rural or remote locations where grid electricity is almost not available. So, without having a conventional energy source at these areas, the present study was taken up to design and fabricate a solar PV powered vapour compression refrigeration system to attain favourable conditions for potato storage, and to evaluate its shelf life under different operating conditions. It consisted of PV panel, inverter and the vapour compression refrigeration system consists of a drier-cum-filter besides the main components: compressor, condenser, expansion device, evaporator, exhaust and evaporator fans.
