Effect of employing solar hybrid adsorption desalination-cooling system (ADCS) at the Egyptian weather
has been investigated using TRNSYS software employing meteorological data of Assiut city at Egypt. A
theoretical model of a semi continues hybrid ADCS employing silica gel-water has been used.
Maximum specific daily water production (SDWP) is found to be about 10 m3/ton of silica gel.
Moreover, maximum coefficient of performance and specific cooling power of the system are about 0.5
and 134 W/kg respectively. The desalinated water product and cooling effect has been found to be
increased with increasing the daily solar radiation. It has been concluded that hybrid ADCS can be driven
efficiently by using solar energy of the Egyptian weather.
