EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF A PROTOTYPE SOLAR POWERED INTERMITTENT ABSORPTION VAPOR REFRIGERATOR

EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF A PROTOTYPE SOLAR POWERED INTERMITTENT ABSORPTION VAPOR REFRIGERATOR

ABSTRACT  

At present, non-renewable energy sources are depleted constantly, Harmful emissions from fossil fuels and chlorine-based refrigerants have led to economic and more severely, environmental hazards. The world has been working to reduce hazardous emissions while developing renewable energy sources and technology. Leading the industry of renewable energy is solar power. By collecting and storing solar heat, and transferring this energy to power an absorption refrigerator, energy efficiency can improve, eradicating usually necessary (poor and sometime unavailable) electricity.

The development of an inexpensive, modular, small scale cold room based upon the absorption refrigeration process. This project was developed to proffer means of providing refrigeration to agricultural products in communities lacking or unable to afford conventional energy sources (electrical energy).

A solar driven ammonia absorption refrigeration system was designed, a modular prototype constructed and tested. It was an intermittent system where ammonia and water were used as refrigerant and absorbent respectively. The main components like evaporator, condenser and generator were designed based on certain assumptions such as generator temperature 70oc, refrigerating effect of 5 tonnes (for full scale construction). The necessary heat and mass transfer equations describing the working properties were specified. The theoretical obtained COP was 0.25. Information on designing the condenser, evaporator, and generator of the unit has been presented.

It was assumed that the vapor generating from the generator was 100% pure ammonia vapor. The thermal energy input was calculated to be with Is (solar intensity) = 600 W/m2 where collector efficiency was assumed 30% and collector mirror surface area was 2.3m2, but for purpose of increasing the efficiency, it was the collector area was increased by 20%.

  • "My Dear Researchwap, initially I never believed one can actually do honest business transactions with Nigerians online until i stumbled into your website. You have broken a new legacy of record as far as am concerned. Keep up the good work!"

    Willie Ekereobong, University of Port Harcourt.
  • "WOW, SO IT'S TRUE??!! I can't believe I got this quality work for just 3k...I thought it was scam ooo. I wouldn't mind if it goes for over 5k, its worth it. Thank you!"

    Theressa, Igbinedion University.
  • "I did not see my project topic on your website so I decided to call your customer care number, the attention I got was epic! I got help from the beginning to the end of my project in just 3 days, they even taught me how to defend my project and I got a 'B' at the end. Thank you so much researchwap.com, infact, I owe my graduating well today to you guys...."

    Joseph, Abia state Polytechnic.
  • "My friend told me about ResearchWap website, I doubted her until I saw her receive her full project in less than 15 miniutes, I tried mine too and got it same, right now, am telling everyone in my school about researchwap.com, no one has to suffer any more writing their project. Thank you for making life easy for me and my fellow students... Keep up the good work"

    Christiana, Landmark University .
  • "I wish I knew you guys when I wrote my first degree project, it took so much time and effort then. Now, with just a click of a button, I got my complete project in less than 15 minutes. You guys are too amazing!."

    Musa, Federal University of Technology Minna
  • "I was scared at first when I saw your website but I decided to risk my last 3k and surprisingly I got my complete project in my email box instantly. This is so nice!!!."

    Ali Obafemi, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University, Niger State.
