Performance simulations of small scale absorption chiller systems
Australia's challenge is to deal with high peaks
on the electricity grid in summer
due to air conditioning, which is strongly related to the high penetration
of residential air conditioning systems. A small scale solar absorption
chiller building model was developed to investigate its performance
and effectiveness in the different climates of Australia, and to compare
it with the existing split systems.
Different storage options are simulated and compared to each other.
Furthermore, the system is compared to the effect of a photovoltaic
supported conventional system and also the effects on the electricity
grid are analysed.
