Abstract

In this work, a dynamic model for the simulation of solar cooling systems employing adsorption chillers has been evaluated. The model, realised with the commercial software TRNSYS, has been implemented to quantify the effect of different operational and design parameters on the overall performances of solar cooling systems in three different Italian cities (Milan, Rome, Messina). An economic analysis has been performed for an optimised system, in order to evaluate the payback time of the different solutions compared to a traditional air conditioning system, considering also the state incentives introduced since 2012.
