\r\nemployed as electrical power sources to meet the daily residential

\r\nenergy needs of rural areas that have no access to grid systems.

\r\nIn view of this, a standalone SPV powered air cooling system is

\r\nproposed in this paper, which constitutes a dc-dc boost converter,

\r\ntwo voltage source inverters (VSI) connected to two brushless dc

\r\n(BLDC) motors which are coupled to a centrifugal water pump and

\r\na fan blower. A simple and efficient Maximum Power Point Tracking

\r\n(MPPT) technique based on Silver Mean Method (SMM) is utilized

\r\nin this paper. The air cooling system is developed and simulated using

\r\nthe MATLAB \/ Simulink environment considering the dynamic and

\r\nsteady state variation in the solar irradiance.","references":"[1] J. T.
