Abstract: The uprising of global warming urges us to replace current air conditioning system as it poses hazard to the environment. Adsorption cooling cycle is one promising alternative solution as it is far more environmental friendly and can be powered by low-grade heat. This report presents parametric study of a two-bed, silica gel-water adsorption chiller with heat recovery system. Software such as MATLAB and REFPROP are used to create transient mathematical model. This study also optimises operating parameters of adsorption chiller to achieve maximum performance. The proposed two-bed adsorption chiller is capable of delivering 3 kW cooling capacity required by a small vehicle. The adsorption chiller has COP of 0.54. Result comparison with previous study with different adsorbent-adsorbate pair is also presented at the end of the report.
