Review paper on solar-powered air-conditioning through adsorption route

By B. Choudhury, P.K. Chatterjee and J.P. Sarkar


Solar-power based sorption refrigeration systems do not suffer from the problem of greenhouse gas emission and release of ozone layer depleting substances as in the case of conventional vapour compression refrigeration system. Absorption based systems are already commercially available while adsorption based systems are still in research and development stage. Progress and development of solar-powered adsorption cooling systems have been described in this paper. Factors preventing commercialization of this system have been discussed in detail. The state of the ongoing research, to make the system more efficient and cost effective, has been presented.Refrigeration Air-conditioning Solar energy Absorption Adsorption
