Hybrid Desiccant Cooling System Using Condensing Heat as the Regeneration Source. Part II: Energy Saving Potential
Based on the system model of hybrid desiccant cooling system using condensing heat as the regeneration source, the solution is given to investigate the system characteristic. The result showed that, when the outdoor air humidity ratio is below 18.5g/kg and indoor dehumidification load is below 1.5kg/h, the energy consumption of this system is lower than the enthalpy recovery air-conditioning system. If not, due to the high energy consumption of electrical heating, the desiccant wheel using condensing heat and electrical heat is not suitable for the humid areas.
