Abstract

This study clarifies the summer performance of a floor heating/cooling and desiccant cooling system utilizing solar heat energy based on field measurements and discusses the precision of a numerical simulation model. It was found that the system-COP during the field measurement was not good due to poor performance of desiccant cooling unit, and this should be improved. The numerical simulation model was validated by comparing the calculated results with the field measurement results.
