Solar Thermal Air Conditioners

Shivam Photovoltaic leads the way with solar air conditioning that provides people with an innovative energy saving air conditioner utilizing thermal energy to provide cost effective clean green solar air conditioning comfort.

The Shivam Photovoltaic solar air conditioning range is suitable for commercial and domestic application, within the design parameters of the Shivam Photovoltaic product range.

The Shivam Photovoltaic solar air conditioning system saves up to approximately 80% of energy relative to a comparable inverter air conditioning system. The Shivam Photovoltaic solar air conditioning system is manufactured to a very high standard and has an internationally recognized quality assurance system.

We at Shivam Photovoltaic have taken the initiative to reduce your power consumption and carbon footprint.

How solar thermal air conditioning system works ?

All air conditioning systems use a closed loop cycle for the refrigerant (gas). The compressor (within the condenser) is typically used to pressurize the refrigerant to allow the process to take place. Alternatively, an external heat source (such as a thermal plate collector) may be used to capture ambient temperature and impart the heat in to the refrigerant, thus creating pressure within a closed loop of refrigerant. The more heat the refrigerant is exposed to, the less work that the compressor must do to allow the process to occur and therefore more energy efficient.

With this in mind, the Shivam Photovoltaic solar air conditioning system has a thermal plate collector installed adjacent to the condenser, which is used to capture heat and impart it in to the refrigerant prior to it passing in to the compressor. To optimize efficiency, the thermal plate collector has heat conducting inner coils inside it and a header tank (full of water). Once the refrigerant passes through the thermal plate collector, it enters the compressor and the final pressurization of the system occurs. This process facilitates energy savings of up to 80%.

Once the room achieves the desired temperature, the condenser will turn off. The refrigerant will continue to cycle until the room temperature deviates too much from the desired temperature. During this process, gradually pressure within the circulating refrigerant will decrease and therefore reduce the ability for the system to maintain the desired temperature. When the pressure drops too low, the compressor will turn back on and appropriately re-pressurize the refrigerant. Contrary to this, due to the thermal plate collector within the Shivam Photovoltaic system, the refrigerant continues to be pressurized from the heat being imparted in to it and therefore the compressor will remain off considerably longer.

The compressor and solar thermal collector are synergistically paired such that the system can operate with a smaller compressor relative to a comparable sized inverter system. As such, the Shivam Photovoltaic systems consume collectively much less electricity and, in tandem with the solar collector cycle, Shivam Photovoltaic solar air conditioners optimize energy savings and reduce running costs.

The Shivam Photovoltaic solar air conditioning range is suitable for any commercial or residential building within the design parameters of the systems.
