Chapter 7

Solar Thermal-Driven Cooling Systems

Abstract

This chapter provides a detailed review of different solar thermal-driven refrigeration and cooling systems. Theoretical basis and practical applications for cooling systems within various working fluids assisted by solar energy and their recent advances are presented. The first aim of this chapter is to give an overview of the state-of-the-art of the sorption and thermomechanical technologies that are available to deliver cooling from solar energy. The second aim is to compare the potential of these technologies in delivering competitive sustainable solutions. The topics approached in present chapter is similar to that of the other work but it is focused on solar closed-sorption refrigeration ...
