This paper reports the performance of an adsorption cooling system employing activated carbon powder (Maxsorb III)/R32 adsorption pair. The system has been modeled and simulated numerically and the effect of changing the operating conditions has been studied. The system has been simulated to driven by a low-grade heat source temperature below 90ºC and effectively employs solar heat and/or waste sources to drive the system.
