Paper Title:
Numerical Analysis of Heat and Mass Transfer in an Annular Porous Adsorber for Solar Cooling System
  Abstract

The present study deals with a solid adsorption refrigerator analysis using activated carbon/methanol pair. It is a contribution to technology development of solar cooling systems. The main objective consists to analyse the heat and mass transfer in an annular porous adsorber that is the most important component of the system. The porous medium is contained in the annular space and the adsorber is heated by solar energy. A general model equation is used for modelling the transient heat and mass transfer. Effects of the key parameters on the adsorbed quantity, the coefficient of performance, and thus on the system performance are analysed and discussed.
