Abstract
Adsorption cooling systems (ACS) may contribute towards a sustainable way of satisfying the increasing cooling demand, as they utilize solar thermal energy and employ non-ozone-depleting substances. Apart from the intrinsic ACS performance, the successfulness of its operation depends on its integration within the entire thermal system (solar collectors, thermal storage and building), which is not straight-forward due to thermal inertia effects and its inherent cyclic operation. Numerical simulat...
