Experimental Research on Liquid Desiccant Air-conditioning Unit
Nanjing Normal University, School of Energy and Mechanical Engineering, 210042, China
An experimental device of liquid desiccant air conditioning system is established. Experimental tests about the temperature difference between diluted solution of inlet and concentrated solution of exit in the solution heat exchanger are carried on, and CaCl2 solution is used as desiccant. Results show that: the fluctuation range in the day at different times of the basic difference of the measured temperature does not exceed 1°C, and the temperature difference between diluted solution of inlet and concentrated solution of exit in solution heat exchanger appears the minimum value of 2.7°C and the maximum value of 10.2°C. Also, the percent of the additional load and the ratio of additional load to the evaporator load are analyzed.
