This paper deals with the performance evaluation of an innovative, waste heat driven dual evaporator type three-bed adsorption cycle for cooling application. The innovative adsorption chiller has two evaporators, three adsorbent beds, and a condenser, and the evaporators work at different pressure levels. The effects of hot water inlet temperature, chilled water inlet and outlet temperatures, and cycle time on the specific cooling capacity (SCC) and coefficient of performance (COP) were predicted by simulation. For the same operating condition, the SCC and COP of the dual evaporator type three-bed adsorption chiller were found to be 1.5 and 1.7 times higher than those of the two-bed single-stage adsorption chiller, respectively.
