Solar sorption refrigerator using a CPC collector
UNSPECIFIED. (1999) Solar sorption refrigerator using a CPC collector. RENEWABLE ENERGY, 16 (1-4). pp. 735-738. ISSN 0960-1481Full text not available from this repository.
A prototype Compound Parabolic Concentrating (CPC) solar energy collector for a sorption refrigerator is presented. It consists of two CPC reflectors, two absorbers and a single glazing cover. The absorber is made with seamless steel tube covered in a selective surface (absorptance: 0.95) and contains aluminium fins, activated carbon and ammonia. The parabolas are manufactured from aluminium foil and a reflective microfilm is bonded on its surfaces to provide high solar reflectance (0.95). The concentration ratio of the collector is about 2.4 and corresponds to an incidence half angle of 25 degrees. A numerical model of the absorber is described. Simulations with a daily solar radiation corresponding to tropical areas are presented. (C) 1998 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
