AbstractThe present research is devoted to solve the problem of high energy consumption by air conditioners in summer. In order to eliminate domestic electricity for cool-ing purposes and rely directly on solar energy isolated from the grid connection and increases the performance of the solar panel by using front water spray cool-ing system for the panel, and by using Adruino as controller to control the cooling system. The experimental system setup arranged in Iraq at Al-taje site during the summer season at a room. The proposed system consists of an array of photovolta-ic, battery used to store power, PWM charge controller, and DC air cooler, Adruino. During the examination of the system, The enhancement of the solar pan-el has a positive effect on long-term batteries and improves the battery life by which the charge and discharge when combined with a direct photovoltaic air conditioning system without refrigeration. Excess power generated from the PV panels is storage in the batteries, which make the system is the most familiar with Iraq's summer conditions.
