This article presents the principle of operation of an experimental indirect evaporative cooling system which applies liquid desiccant solution as a drying agent. This mobile system is going to be built for the investigation of the effects of different working parameters (e.g. regenerating temperature of the desiccant salt-solution, air flow rates, solution flow rates, droplet size and mixing path length, etc.) on the produced cooled and dehumidified air, as well as the effects of the initial hot-air parameters (temperature and humidity) on the effectiveness (cooling and dehumidification rate) of the system. In this paper the basic mechanisms of both the direct and indirect evaporative cooling systems are presented with their advantages and disadvantages. It is shown how the solar energy by means of solar collector(s) can be utilized as an energy source of the regeneration of the diluted desiccant solution. Besides the 3D drawing and the parts of the experimental cooler and air dryer system will be presented and explained.
