Starting from the project background to its problem statement and objective, the writer explored and explained the basic theoretical information behind the topic aborted in this project (solar adsorption cooling system using activated media for equatorial humid climate), as well as the methodology to be used in order to accomplish the desired output. This project is about designing a solar powered adsorption cooling system that fits the needs and cooling requirements of a typical house under the equatorial humid climate. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was chosen and all the relevant data concerning the design of the refrigeration system shall take into account its climate properties. A few adsorbent candidates were compared using relevant criteria that suits for this current application, and final choice was the activated carbon for presenting better results among the other adsorbents. The same was done to select adsorbates and the final choice was the refrigerant R600 (N-butane). Adsorption analysis on this pair was done following the ideal cycle and based on the calculatious and results obtained, could be noticed that the SCE of the system can go up to 27 KJ/Kg while the COP up to 0.169 (Optimum value). Under these results could be concluded that this system is capable to keep up with the house cooling load demand which presents a value of 6.03 KW.
