Title: Analysis of advanced conceptual designs for single-family-size absorption chillers. Project 9101 final report, for the period September 1, 1977-August 31, 1978

Abstract

This report presents the results of a research study to identify new and potentially improved fluid systems for solar-powered absorption cooling. The study included a thorough state-of-the-art review, screening of alternative candidates, data development of the most promising candidates, and cycle calculations to evaluate the best alternative systems. Both binary and ternary absorption systems have been addressed, systems exhibiting positive and negative deviation from Raoult's law were examined, and cycle calculations were performed for water- and air-cooled systems and input temperatures typical of low cost flat-plate collectors and higher temperature concentrating collector systems. Based on criteria established in this study, several binary and ternary systems have been identified as being potentially superior to the conventional systems for solar-powered absorption cooling.
