A theoretical evaluation of solar-powered desiccant cooling in the United Kingdom

Publication Summary

Desiccant cooling is a potentially environmentally friendly technology that can be used to condition the internal environment of buildings. Unlike conventional air conditioning systems, which rely on electrical energy to drive the cooling cycle, desiccam cooling is a heat-driven cycle. This paper follows on from an initial study by Halliday and Beggs, and uses real meteorological data to evaluate the potential in the United Kingdom of using solar energy to drive the desiccant cooling cycle. Through the use of parametric studies, the paper investigates the energy consumption and costs associated with desiccant cooling
