Abstract

Recently, desiccant cooling systems are well thought of as a competent method for controlling the water content in the air. A solar flat-plate collector has been used as it decreases the dependency on non-renewable resources. Solar-aided liquid desiccant systems have been used to reduce the dependency of air-conditioning systems on non-renewable sources of energy. Manipal’s humid and searing climate provides certain benefits in setting up such a system. The suggested system has reliability and equipment life and also takes complete advantage of the available solar energy for the renewal of the liquid desiccant. TRNSYS simulation is used to predict the efficiency and feasibility of the system. The temperature and energy-load variations were successfully obtained. An effective simulation was developed whereby the solar air conditioning of a room was indicated.
