Capstone project

Solar powered absorption refrigerator

The objective of this project was to design a mobile, portable refrigeration unit operating at safe temperatures for cold food storage. The unit was modeled by working methodically through various concepts in an attempt to produce the best-fit design based on customer requirements. This Product Design Specification is a detailed analysis of the processes used to accomplish set tasks culminating in the final product. The team's design ultimately utilized an absorption cycle refrigerator with solar photovoltaic cells to power a heat generator and the necessary control electronics.
