dc.description.abstractThe air conditioning systems currently utilized in automobiles are the vapor compression systems. This type of system has many disadvantages: the refrigerant used is not environmentally friendly, the compressor is in competition with the engine coolant system, and the compressor uses a significant portion of the engine power. A waste heat driven absorption refrigeration system is one alternative to the current systems that could address these problems. The absorption refrigeration system uses solutions for the absorbent-refrigerant pair that do not harm the environment. This investigation includes a theoretical analysis of the feasibility of absorption air conditioning system in automotive applications. Also, a comparison of the power requirements of the proposed system and the vapor compression system is performed.en_US
