PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF A SOLAR HYBRID AIR-CONDITIONER

Authors: Nnamdi Cyprian Nwasuka, Uchechukwu Nwaiwu

Abstract: This research presents a solar hybrid air-conditioning system with R410a refrigerant. The sole aim was to compare the performance of a solar hybrid air-conditioner with that of the conventional split-unit air-conditioning systems in the market today. From the experiments conducted, the room temperature of a solar hybrid air conditioner was found to be :27.2, 27.0, 27.0, 27.2, 27.2, 27.0, 28.0, and 29.5 while that of the conventional air conditioner was found to be:69,66,64,66,73,69,66,62 indicating that solar hybrid system had lower values in terms of room temperature than that of the split units air conditioner. Laboratory results, field assessments, and simulations clearly established that hybrid air conditioners can deliver substantial energy savings and demand reduction. Therefore, in the present study, performance evaluation of the solar hybrid system with that of the split units is used to develop approximate analytical solutions for heat transfer in boundary layer flow and heat transfer.
