Abstract: This article presents the study of the energy performance of a new absorption cooling system with internal storage. A full dynamic simulation including the solar collector field, the absorption heat pump system and the building loads has been performed. The system, which is based on a new technology, is composed by four heat pumps that store energy in the form of crystallized salts so that no external storage capacity is required. For this purpose, a new model has been specifically developed. The energy performance of this system has been compared to a conventional system composed of one liquid absorption pump and external storage in a water tank. The influence of the control strategies in the operation of the four CW10 has been analysed. Additionally t he results of the simulations show the performance of both cooling systems when varying solar field surface and the storage capacity of the water tanks.
