Simulation studies on performance of solar cooling system in UAE conditions
KTH.
2014 (English)In: Energy Procedia 48: Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Solar Heating and Cooling for Buildings and Industry (SHC 2013), Elsevier, 2014, 1007-1016 p.Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The abundance of solar radiation makes the approach of solar cooling the most sustainable cooling solutions for the Gulf countries like UAE. In this article, the performance of a 10 TR solar absorption cooling system was evaluated by TRNSYS simulation. The system used for simulation studies was developed at SOLAB of CSEM-uae for the purpose of assessing the potential of applying solar cooling systems in this region. Simulation results show that the solar cooling system operates with a COP in the range of 0.60 - 0.80. The simulation results closely match a typical day performance validating the model. The currently installed system can meet its cooling requirement for almost 2/3rd of year without back up heating and/or cooling.
