Abstract: By means of carefully devised assumptions, a simple linear model is presented for an absorption refrigeration unit employing either water-lithium bromide or ammonia-water refrigerant-absorbent pairs. Absorption systems are an alternative to vapour compression systems by being thermally activated. Such heat energy may come from the sun or even from hot exhaust gases from a particular engineering process. A thorough investigation of the optimal operating temperatures is necessary to ensure effective operation of the system. By means of this simulation, the system response to varying absorber, generator and condenser temperatures was analyzed.
