Abstract: The present work aims to design a cooling and power supply system using solar panels for deployment in warehouse crops, thereby facilitating the incorporation of renewable energy in agriculture.  With this system it will be possible to promote the use of alternative energies to satisfy the needs of the refrigeration warehouses, which is linked to the reduction of energy costs, efficient crop preservation and sustainable development and growth in the agricultural sector without harming the environment.

We have chosen a real place in Jalpan de Serra, Queretaro, Mexico in order to normalize the weather conditions for the implementation of the system. Through the course of Power Electronics the different modules comprising the system were defined: energy storage, maximum power point, power supply utility and HVAC control system.
