Title: Zeolite-water close cycle solar refrigeration; numerical optimisation and field-testing

Abstract

The availability of Solar Energy in sub-tropical countries together with the needs of cooling add up to develop a strong interest for simple solar-powered cold chamber technologies. Close cycle systems with a zeolitewater couple seem to meet these criteria. The central components of these systems are the flat plate solar collectors that countain the zeolite. A novel design, using a double bottom for vapour manifolding, and fins, is introduced. A two dimensional finite difference model has been used to simulate transient coupled heat and mass (water vapor) transfers taking place day and night.
