DESICCANT COOLING EPUB

Desiccant cooling is a new technology that can be used to condition the internal environment of buildings without use of harmful refrigerants. Desiccant cooling systems are basically open cycle systems, using water as refrigerant in direct contact with air. The thermally driven cooling. In this paper, the principles underlying the operation of desiccant cooling systems are recalled and their actual technological applications are discussed.

In India, no commercial project is desiccant cooling on the concept of desiccant cooling. Research projects are underway to make the application more viable.

Liquid Desiccant Cooling A new technology, close to market introduction, are desiccant cooling systems using a liquid water- lithium chloride solution as sorption material.

This type of systems shows several advantages like higher air dehumidification at the same driving temperature range of solid desiccant cooling systems, and the possibility of high energy storage by storing the concentrated solution.

This technology is a promising option for a desiccant cooling increase in exploitation of solar thermal systems for desiccant cooling conditioning.

Currently, a few systems of this type are installed in Germany in pilot and demonstration applications, driven either with desiccant cooling thermal heat or from other heat sources.

A pilot project in Germany for testing this desiccant cooling concept is currently in the design phase.

The process of simultaneous heating and cooling wastes a considerable amount of energy which reduces the performance of the system.

Moreover, damp conditions turn into the breeding place for bacteria, which deteriorates the indoor air quality [ 11 ]. The main concern of engineers while designing a desiccant cooling is to maintain the balance between thermal comfort, indoor air quality and energy usage.

Air-conditioning systems are designed to maximize human comfort in the interior environment and promise well-being by providing optimum indoor air quality.

Additionally, the metabolic activity and clothing also determines the thermal comfort and its consequence on desiccant cooling ventilation. Because it is a heat driven cycle, there is the potential to use environmentally cleaner sources of energy desiccant cooling as gas, hot water, waste heat or any heat source, including solar thermal energy, able to elevate desiccant cooling air temperature to a level adequate for reactivation.
