Thermodynamic study of multistage absorption cycles using low-temperature heat


Reports on a study of the use of low-temperature heat (between 50 and 90 deg. C) to drive absorption systems in refrigeration and heat pump cycles.  Double and triple-stage absorption systems are modelled and simulated providing a comparison between different absorbent refrigerants.  The minimum temperature required in the generators to operate the refrigeration and heat pump cycles is also presented.
