Investigation of Solar Cooling Cogeneration Plant
The deficiency in the energy for the space cooling is overcome by solar energy. Still the input energy is minimized by integrating both power and cooling cycle in common platform, such as working fluid, component and working parameters. The aqua-ammonia is used in both power cycle and vapor cooling cycle. The generator is common for cycles for the production of ammonia vapor. The analyses are made to find out the operational parameters for the cooling cogeneration cycle with solar as source. The analyses are done for the proposed cycle with various atmosphere temperatures. At absorber concentration of 0.42 and turbine inlet concentration of 0.90, with solar collector exit temperature of 155°C and atmosphere temperature of 30°C the generated power and cooling are 21.88 and 215.79 kW, respectively. The power and cooling output range can alter by varying turbine inlet concentration and temperature.
