Abstract

An adsorption cooling system is a heat-activated cooling system based on the solid sorption process. It is also a good choice for solar cooling, just like the absorption cooling system. In this chapter, the working principles of both intermittent and continuous adsorption cooling systems are introduced. The choices of physical adsorption working pair, chemical adsorption working pair, and composite adsorption working pair are introduced. Various adsorption cooling systems are then classified and introduced based on the coupled solar collector, working pair, cooling output, ...
