Desiccant cooling systems operate on the principle of adsorption dehumidification and evaporative cooling. Such systems use a natural working fluid and can be driven by low-grade thermal energy, which makes them especially useful for integration with solar collector systems. Because of these merits, solar-powered desiccant cooling systems are widely recognized as good alternatives to conventional vapor compression air-conditioning systems and have attracted increasing interest in the past years. This chapter aims to summarize research developments related to solar-powered ...
