Solar - absorption cooling

Postby Fabian92 » Mon Sep 11, 2017 10:16 pm

Hi, I need to know if in Design Builder it's possible to design a solar cooling system with an absorption chiller.
I understand that in v5 has been introduced absorption chillers, but it is possible to work with solar collectors?
Another question, can you connect the absorption chiller in series with a conventional chiller?

Yes, it is possible to model solar cooling system with an absorption chiller in DBv5.2. See example below.
