Abstract

This article presents a thermodynamic framework for the estimation of the minimum driving heat source temperature of an advanced adsorption cooling device from the rigor of Boltzmann distribution function and the condensation approximation of adsorptive molecules on adsorbent porous surface. The calculated results are validated with our own experimentally measured data. From this thermodynamic analysis, an interesting and useful finding has been established that it is possible to develop an adsorption cooling device that operates with a driving heat source temperature as low as 40°C along with a coolant of temperature 30°C We have also presented here the thermodynamic modeling and experimental investigation of an advanced adsorption chiller for understanding its working principles.
