Innovative Systems for Solar Air Conditioning of Buildings
MetadataShow full item record
Solar air conditioning is an attractive technology to achieve comfortable room conditions, especially in hot and sunny climates. In particular air conditioning systems based on sorption technologies offer several advantages as they can be designed for a high efficient utilization of solar thermal energy. To show the today's and near future potential innovative solar cooling and air conditioning systems are discussed which are well adapted to the utilization of solar energy. The system performance of each air conditioning system is evaluated under Abu Dhabi design conditions.
