Abstract:
In the present energy crises, it is necessary to harness the alternate source of energy. India is blessed with abundant amount of solar energy which is freely available, in exhaustible pollution free and clean in nature. The agro-Processing unit based on Animal power can be face the difficulties in areas here animal population is not adequate, also it needs maintenance throughout the year with regard to health and hygiene of the animal, similarly it needs large space to construct rotary mode set up. An Efforts are made to designs and developed 3.0 kW solar power generation system working VFD to operate existing electrical power available with the machine. Performance evaluation of papad making machine is started with respect to its output and working efficiency. Hence the agro processing unit based on the solar energy is undertaken to evaluate its performance of different processing machine up to 3 kW power. The mean rpm of motor operated by the solar are found to be 1400. The mean rpm of the papad making machine shaft was observed to be 450. The mean output was found to be 10 kg/h were as the output of papad making machine operated by bullock power was 8 kg/h. The total cost of operation of papad making machine operated by solar power 79.26 observed while operating with 2 hp three phase motor.
