Application of internal cooled desiccant wheel in air-conditioning system

Desiccant wheel based air-conditioning systems (DWAC) include a desiccant wheel component that performs latent cooling coupled to another component, for example an indirect evaporative cooler (IEC also known as a dew point evaporative cooler), that performs the sensible cooling without adding moisture into the air...

Performance investigation of an internally cooled desiccant wheel

Highlights An isothermal process improves the dehumidification performance around 48%. A mathematic model could be used to predict the performance of the new wheel. The overlap of desiccant layers restricts heat exchange performance of the wheel. Desiccant cooling system with the new wheel has an...

A Component Testing System Simulation (CTSS) method for characterising solar air-conditioner performance

Solar desiccant air-conditioning is an emerging technology that offers the promise of reducing reliance on grid connected electricity for providing comfort air-conditioning. Development of a method of assessing the seasonal energy savings of these devices would enable a fair comparison with alternative devices. This could...

Development of a solar airconditioning Australian standard

Solar airconditioning is an emerging renewable energy technology that is technically proven and suitable for wide scale deployment. Unfortunately, solar airconditioning cannot compete on a level playing field with other renewable energy technologies because it is not eligible for government rebates such as those awarded...
