The modeling of the performance of a one refrigeration ton (RT) solar assisted adsorption air-conditioning refrigeration system using activated carbon fiber/ethanol as the adsorbent/adsorbate pair has been undertaken in this study. The effects of hot water, cooling water, chilled water inlet temperatures, and hot water and chilled water flow rates were taken into consideration in the optimization of the system and in the design of the condenser, evaporator, and hot water storage tank. The study includes analysis of the weather data and its effect on both the adsorption system and the cooling load. This is then followed by estimation of the cooling capacity and coefficient of performance (COP) of the adsorption system as a function of the input parameters. The results of the model will be compared to experimental data in a next step.
