Here are presented the results of my bachelor dissertation, about Solar Cooling in buildings.
The 'solar cooling plant, literally "solar cooling", is a plant that allows, through the absorber, or desiccant wheel, the transformation of heat captured by solar collectors in chilled water for summer cooling of buildings.
The dominant technology for producing the cold source is solar absorption. Absorption chillers are commercially available for many years, especially in combination with cogeneration or waste heat that would otherwise be lost. For air conditioning applications, the absorption chillers use as the fluid mixture of water-lithium bromide with water as coolant. Clearly, these systems can not produce cooling below 0 C °.
In this work are described the technologies involved in a SC plant, and then an example is designed for a call center application, with the optimal design given by 48 Solarbayer plane solar absorbers with a Yazaki WSC-FC 10 absorption machine.
Figures of economical performance are given, as well as energetic analisys.
