Article Preview

A novel solar-powered hybrid energy system with cooling and heating is presented, which consists of an adsorption ice maker subsystem and water heater subsystem. It can be used as an ice maker and water heater hybrid system or a single water heater respectively according to incident solar radiation intensity. A numerical model is developed to predict the performances of the hybrid energy system. Performance simulation and analysis on the hybrid energy system have been made. Simulation results show that, under the climatic conditions of daily solar radiation being about 12-20MJ/m2, the hybrid energy system can be used as an ice maker and a water heater effectively, its daily solar cooling COP (coefficient of performance) is about 0.173 - 0.181, the daily heating coefficient of performance is about 0.294-0.327.
