Air conditioning systems has known a steady grow in recent decades which has a major impact on energy demand and environment. Systems using solar energy as fuel have been developed more than 100 years ago. The paper present such an alternative, prototype system, ammonia-water absorption refrigeration system (ARS) with minichannels powered by low temperature energy, using renewable sources for cooling. A short numerical calculation is made for determine the performance of the machine. The results obtained using EES program are presented and also first measurements on prototype machine.
