A Study of Desiccant-Based Cooling and Dehumidifying System in Hot-Humid Climate

Maatouk Khoukhi
Abstract—The objective of this study is to investigate the feasibility of using desiccant cooling system as an alternative HVAC solution in buildings to achieve thermal comfort. This solution is more attractive when the solar energy is used to regenerate the desiccant wheel. An extensive experimental study has been performed in Tohoku University in Japan. A TRNSYS model of the desiccant cooling system combined with the heat wheel and heat source has been simulated and compared with the experimental data. The results of the simulation show that such system is feasible for cooling building in hot-humid climates.

Index Terms—Cooling, desiccant wheel, hot-humid climate
