Solar ETC Adsorption Cycle for chilled water cooling system is presented in this model. SilicaGel material has been used in this model. Silica gel is an amorphous and porous form of silicon dioxide (silica), consisting of an irregular tridimensional framework of alternating silicon and oxygen atoms with nanometer-scale voids and pores. Water has been used as the main refrigerant throughout the cycle. The cycle contains the following:
1-Evaporator (water).
2-Bed reactor tank (SilicaGel/water).
3-Condenser (water vapor).
5-Expansion valve.
The model is a performance model that can measure the effect of operating conditions on the system efficiency or the COP. This is also a performance model about Evacuated Tube Solar Collector (ETSC) in the assistance of Solar Still Desalination Process. In this Evacuated tube Solar Collector (ETC) performance model, the user will be able to discover the effect of the operating conditions (solar radiation, ambient temperature, feed flow rate, inlet temperature, etc... ) on the performance of the ETC. The system's total area and design aspects will be kept known for that purpose. The following parameters can be calculated:
2-Overall losses.
3-Pressure losses.
4-Outlet temperature.
5-Exergy analysis.


**MatLab-SimuLink should be used to run the model.
