Adsorption, Solar Adsorption Refrigeration System


The adsorption refrigeration is based on the evaporation and condensation of a refrigerant combined with adsorption. This project will describes the design and fabrication of the experimental chamber, the experimental procedure and its feasibility towards development of an alternative eco-friendly refrigeration cycle for replacement of chlorofluorocarbons. Solar adsorption refrigeration devices are significant to meet the needs for cooling requirements such as air conditioning, ice making and medical or food preservation in remote areas. They are also noiseless, non-corrosive and environmentally friendly. Various solar powered cooling systems have been tested extensively; these systems are not yet ready to compete with the well-known vapour compression systems. For these reasons, research activities in this sector are still on to solve the technical, economical and environmental problems. So, the primary objective of this work is to provide fundamental understandings of the solar adsorption systems and to give useful guidelines regarding the working principles of the various intermittent adsorption systems and their applications in ice making with the aim of improving Coefficient of Performance (COP). Also, in this work, a review of the research state of art of the solar sorption (absorption and adsorption) refrigeration technologies is presented. After an explanation of the systems working principles, recent progress in solar sorption refrigeration technologies are also reported. It shows that solar powered sorption systems refrigeration technologies are attractive alternatives that not only can serve the needs for air conditioning, refrigeration, ice making and cooling purposes, but also can meet demands for energy conservation and environmental protection.
