Abstract

In terms of solar thermal-driven air-conditioning cycles, in addition to the common solar-driven solid adsorption cycles, liquid absorption cycles, and desiccant cooling cycles, there are also some other types of solar-powered cooling systems in which solar-driven ejector cooling cycles and Rankine cycles are recently drawing more and more attention. This chapter aims to conclude the operation principles and recent development with respect to these two types of solar-powered cooling systems.
