Solar Adsorption Refrigeration Cycle (SARC) system is similar to vapor compression system in which compressor is replaced by solar heat driven adsorption bed. The adsorption bed is integrated with a flat plate solar collector (FPC/Bed REactor) 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. Refrigerant used is Methanol (CH3OH) as it has greater affinity towards the salt (Activated carbon). This model is a design model for Solar Adsorption Refrigeration Cycle (SARC). Solar flat plate collector is attached to the bed reactor for heat generation process. The cycle contains the following:
2-Bed reactor tank.
3-Solar collector (FPC/water).
5-Expansion valve.
6-Activated carbon is used as a bed salt.
7-Methanol CH3OH is used as a main refrigerant.
