Solar refrigerator machines based on solid adsorption present a highly interesting solution to the Industry of Cooling Production. In one hand, they are significantly attractive economy ways because of the abundance of the solar energy resources. In the other hand, they are environment friendly. As a result, these machines could present one of the most competitive solutions to the improvement of this very industry. The aim of this paperwork is to provide an accurate study on how to design, seize and build a prototype of an adsorption solar refrigerator using activated-carbon/ammonia pair: Firstly, we used a static model, which is based on the use of state equations (vapor/liquid) at thermodynamic equilibrium. This model computes the cycled mass and the cycle coefficient of performance (COPc) for each four characteristic temperatures of the cycle. Secondly, we develop a dynamic simulation program based on conservation equations of energy and mass in the reactor, this program allow the calculation of the temperature, the pressure inside the reactor, the adsorbed mass and the solar coefficient of performance (COPs). Finally, in the light of our results, we design this prototype, it would consist of the reactor: a solar panel, size 1 m2contain tubes with a diameter of 10cm, an air condenser, and a cold chamber containing an air evaporator.
