Will this work? I'm thinking of using 9, 250 watt solar panels in 3 strings to get 90 volt dc and direct connecting a dc motor to a belted refrigeration compressor with an electric clutch, I would allow the motor to free wheel until the motor reached a predetermined speed and then engage the electric clutch. The refrigeration system would make ice to cool the cooler when there is no sunlight. I am refrigeration tech and can do all the calculations on sizing etc., I lack the solar knowledge.
