Simulation of an adsorption solar cooling system

Publication year: 2010brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 3 November 2010brH.Z., Hassan , A.A., Mohamad , R., BennacerbrA more realistic theoretical simulation model for a tubular solar adsorption refrigerating system using activated carbon–methanol (AC/M) pair has been introduced. The mathematical model represents the heat and mass transfer inside the adsorption bed, the condenser, and the evaporator. The simulation technique takes into account the variations of ambient temperature and solar radiation along the day. Furthermore, the local pressure, and local thermal conductivity variations in space and time inside the tubular reactor are investigated as well. A C++ computer program is written to solve the proposed numerical model using the finite difference method. The developed program covers the operations…
