The operation of a two-stage intermittent solar refrigerator is explained briefly with the help of schematic and cycle diagrams. Experiments have been conducted on a laboratory unit, fabricated using flat-plate collectors of 6 m2 exposed area. The experimental results are presented through graphs and Tables. The results are compared with those predicted by heat transfer analysis of the collector and the thermodynamic analysis of the cycle. The agreement between the two is found to be good. It has been possible to produce ice at low generation temperatures, using the two-stage system. Ice produced is 1.5-2 kg/m2 collector area.
