Engineering is all about the application of knowledge and ideas for continuous development in society. In today’s world, there is a strong need for an environment-friendly refrigerating system, therefore, our focus is on a solar powered vapour absorption refrigeration system. This project focuses on a cooling system that minimizes the dependency over electricity and to show our ability to save our resources for future generations. The objective of this work was to design and fabricate a vapour absorption refrigeration system, using LiBr-H20, as the refrigerants and powered by solar energy. Performance Evaluation of the system has been done on the basis of different operating conditions and parameters like, solar irradiance, collector, generator, condenser and evaporator temperature. The COP of the system was obtained as 0.1 and the capacity was 0.01 TR. Since it’s an ab-initio development it will be a unique one in terms of understanding and underlying engineering. The system is an eccentric one that can be operated by multiple heat sources like solar energy, biomass etc. without much change in the design. This system can be used to develop an Air Conditioner, Refrigerator or a Chiller.
