Solar Cooling System, High Efficiency, Saving Energy, Reduction in CO2 Emission, Natural Refrigerant
The authors propose a solar cooling system employing a steam-driven triple effect absorption chiller as a new technique for saving CO2 emission in the air conditioning field. The absorption chiller is a cooling machine using thermal energy as a drive source, and it is ideal for utilizing solar heat. In addition, by employing a triple effect absorption chiller of high efficiency, a high energy saving effect and a significant CO2 saving effect can be expected. As a result of studies, it has been confirmed that the proposed system can reduce the energy consumption amount and the CO2 emission by 86 percent as compared with the existing system.
