Title:
Feasibility and Basic Design of Solar Integrated Absorption Refrigeration for an Industry
Authors:
Akhtar, Saad; Khan, Tariq S.; Ilyas, Saad ( 0000-0002-9389-9718 ) ; Alshehhi, Mohamed S.
Abstract:
This paper presents a review of existing solar cooling technologies and a feasibility study of a solar absorption cooling system for a packaging facility at Tetrapak Lahore, Pakistan. The review includes brief description of existing chiller technologies and solar collectors. The case study includes analysis of the solar potential and design of the cooling system at considered site. The design calculations upon which the feasibility analysis is carried out are solar collector area and type, cooling capacity, cooling area. A comparison is made between solar cooling potential of Pakistan and existing sites all across the globe. Finally an economic analysis is carried out to demonstrate the financial viability of the new cooling system.
