This is a full report (Design & Analysis) about the process description and governing equations related to the Solar adsorption Air Conditioning (SAAC) system is similar to the vapor compression system in which the compressor is replaced by a solar heat-driven adsorption bed. The adsorption bed is integrated with a flat plate solar collector and contains a porous adsorbent medium (low-grade charcoal). The adsorbed content of refrigerant varies cyclically, depending on the adsorbent temperature and system pressure, 
which varies between a maximum limit set by the condensation pressure and a minimum limit imposed by the evaporation pressure. The refrigerant used is NH3 as it has a greater affinity towards salt (CaCl2). This model is a design model for Solar Adsorption Air conditioning System (SAAC). Solar flat plate collector is attached to the bed reactor for the heat generation process. The cycle contains the following:
2-Bed reactor tank.
3-Solar collector (FPC/water).
5-Expansion valve.
6-CaCl2 is used as a bed salt.
7-NH3 is used as the main refrigerant. 
The report is in Word and PDF files and addressed the following:
2-Process description.
3-Mathematical model.
