    The study investigates the effect of mass recovery process on the performance of a conventional two bed solar adsorption cooling system with direct solar coupling mathematically. In an adsorption refrigeration system, the pressure in adsorber and desorber are different. The mass recovery scheme utilizes this pressure difference to enhance the refrigerant mass circulation. Average Cooling Capacity (ACC) and Coefficient of Performance (COP) were calculated by computer simulation to analyze the influences of operating conditions. The results show that the average cooling capacity of mass recovery system is superior to that of conventional system. It is also seen that mass recovery process enhances the overall performances of solar driven chiller and there is an optimum mass recovery time for an adsorption cooling system with direct solar coupling.
