The performance test of solar powered ice maker is being held at the fish auction spot of Kramat, South Lampung for 6 hours. The spesification of ice maker are: having the production capacity of 105 – 120 kg/ day, producing flakes ice with 2 x 3 x 3 mm dimension. The spesification of solar panel are: having maximum power of 200 W, 1,32 m length, 0,992 m width, and 1,3094 m2 area. In this test, we used 9 solar panel with the total area of 11,7846 m2. During the performance test, the intensity of sunlight, battery voltage, battery capacity, power input from solar panel, battery discharge current, maximum power consumption of ice maker, and total ice production are being measured. The sunlight-intensity value (lumen / m2) and the power input of the solar panel (watts) was plotted into a graph. Once the graph is created then add the trendline and create the equation. In a sunny-yet-cloudy weather conditions (at 24-33°C temperature and 65-95% humidity) in South Lampung, the relationship between the sunlight intensity with the power input of the solar panel is linear with the equation y = 0,008x + 143.6. Where the maximum intensity of sunlight is 121600 lm / m2 with the maximum power input of the solar panel (9 x 200Wp) is 1253 W. Total ice production for 6 hours is 28.42 kg or 4.74 kg per hour. This production resulted from a 760 W ice maker with a starting current of 4.6 A with a total power of 3.94 kWh.
