This study deals with a two dimensional numerical analysis of the fin and tube type adsorber/desorber heat exchanger design such as fin height, fin pitch, fin thickness and tube diameter effect on the performance of closed adsorption cooling system with activated carbon fiber (ACF) of type A-20, which has relatively higher surface area, and ethanol pair. The simulation results show that the fin tube diameter is effective on the performance of the heat exchanger. It is also found that the cycle COP can be optimized in the condition of fin pitch 4.5mm and fin height 20mm, respectively when other parameters are fixed.
