Refrigeration systems are necessary for people living in hot climates. A majority of tropical and subtropical countries uses electrical power as a source of cooling. During the seasons of high ambient temperature there is a significant cooling load due to increased level of energy consumption. Cooling systems are therefore necessary in African countries in order to keep medications and food in safe conditions. Furthermore, there is a power shortage crisis due to the high demand for cooling. TRNSYS software allows to simulate a complete solar-powered absorption cooling system. A model used in an experiment includes PV modules making it advantageous over a conventional cooling system. PV modules of assumed area are sufficient to maintain the temperature inside cooling device below 6°C over the whole year.
