Abstract

One of the methods of solar refrigeration involves use of a TRIPLE FLUID Vapor Absorption
Refrigeration System (TFVARS). We convert solar energy to Thermal energy in the form of hot air stream generated at the receiver of a parabolic trough. Thermal Energy developed is used to heat generator of the Triple Fluid VARS. The second method used for solar refrigeration is converting solar energy to thermal energy & then thermal energy to mechanical energy. Thermal Energy is developed just like above way. Thermal to mechanical conversion is done with the ORGANIC RANKINE CYCLE (ORC). The turbine of ORC drives the compressor of a Vapor compression Refrigeration system (VCR) or can alternatively be coupled to a generator to produce electricity. Hence the refrigeration effect is achieved
