  27. 27. Conclusionοƒ˜Solar driven absorption chiller has been designed and analyzed for part load condition using TRNSYS 16οƒ˜The cooling load profile for a typical telecom shelter has been generated for a year and has been used for further analysisοƒ˜Simulation results showed that to achieve a solar thermal efficiency of 65%, the mass flow rate was to be maintained at 120kg/hr in a total collector area of 8π‘š2οƒ˜The hot fluid temperature at the outlet of each collector must be maintained between 90 deg C to 130 deg C to achieve the average temperature of the tank between 75 deg C to 85 deg C and in order to maintain the COP of the chiller between 0.68 to 0.76οƒ˜The chilled water and cooling water temperature difference was found to be around 5 deg C and 4 deg C respectivelyοƒ˜The economic analysis shows that the total energy savings potential per year as 24,820kWh and the total cost savings potential as Rs.1,54,812οƒ˜The environmental analysis shows us there is a potential of mitigating 27.8 tons of CO2 per annum if the SAPIT cooling system replaces the conventional cooling system
