In the solar photovoltaic cooling system the performance of system can be increase either enhances the power generation from the solar photovoltaic panel or decrease the power consumption of air conditioner. The power generation can be increase by using tracking mechanism while the cooling load on air conditioner can be reduced by using thermal mass in the building. In this paper analysis is carried out using thermal masses with respect to base case. The size of air conditioning system is same as in the base case because the peak cooling load is reduced only 0.9 kW in the moderate climates. The peak cooling is reduced to 0.3-0.5 kW in other climates. It is not feasible to reduce the size of the air conditioning system because the reduction in size negligible as per market conditions. Results show that effect on solar fraction is within 1-2% by using additionally thermal masses.
