In response to some serious issues like the energycrisis and environmental problems associated with theconventional compression refrigeration system, thermalair-conditioning systems were therefore developed toovercome the mentioned problems. A completely novelintegrated adsorption and absorption (AD-AB)refrigeration system driven by low-grade temperatureheat sources is proposed in this investigation. This novelcycle focuses on the inherent characteristics of theadsorption and absorption phenomena. The innovationhere is that the generator of the absorption cyclebecomes the evaporator of the adsorption cycle.Therefore, the generation and evaporating pressureare associated with the heat source temperature.Moreover, the adsorber in the adsorption systemreplaces the condenser in the standard absorptionsystem. Thus, the generation pressure is associated withthe heat source temperature and can be adjustedaccording to the solution concentration and generationtemperature.
