Abstract

By employing the energetic optimization technique, the optimal performance of a focusing collector-driven, an irreversible Carnot cogeneration system for air conditioning and refrigeration is investigated. A minimum value for the total solar insolation needed to overcome internal irreversibilities for start-up of the system is defined and the effect of the collector design parameters on this value is investigated.
