Abstract

The design of energy systems becomes more important due to limitations of fossil fuels and the environmental impact during their use. Energy systems are complex as they involve in economic, technical and environmental factors. There are no thermally driven absorption refrigeration machines available on the market which could provide small-capacity cooling for domestic housing applications as well as hotel rooms of less than 10 kW at present. This paper presents a detailed description of a new solar-based refrigeration system using three fluid ammonia-hydrogen/water (NH3-H/HO) vapour absorption systems. This technique uses solar energy to produce cold air and does not pollute the environment.
