    Abstract

    The paper compared the performances of adsorption refrigeration/heat pump systems between the silica gel-water and the activated carbon-ethaonol as adsorbent-adsorbate combinations. The system performance was predicted in a wide range of heat source/sink by simulation. The adsorption isotherm and kinetics of the silica gel-water pair were taken from the literature, and those of the activated carbon-ethanol pair were measured by our group. The results revealed the suitable range for each combination for the application of space cooling, space heating, and hot water production.
