Review of solar-powered desiccant cooling systems

T.S. Ge,  and J.C. Xu     Institute of Refrigeration and Cryogenics, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China

Abstract

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 ...
