Abstract: Biogas operated refrigeration system is being designed, fabricated and installed at Department of Renewable Energy Engineering, MPUAT, Udaipur for a 40 L capacity based on absorption principle. Developed biogas operated absorption refrigeration system has advantages of silent operation, no moving part. Developed system utilizes any heat source and therefore can operate anywhere, without electric utility infrastructure. In the presented research work analysis was done to identify the losses so that the performance of the developed refrigeration system can be evaluated & renewable energy resources can be used more efficiently to power refrigerators based on absorption principle.
