Comparison of Microwave and Conventional Driven Adsorption Heat Pump Cycle Duration
MetadataShow full item record
The present experimental study includes comparison of microwave regenerated and conventional heated adsorbent bed of adsorption heat pump. The novel adsorption heat pump driving with microwave heating system was designed and manufactured. Microwave oven was constructed for providing homogeneous temperature distribution in the adsorbent bed. Temperature and pressure variations in the adsorption heat pump for both microwave and conventional regenerated cycles were measured and investigated. Duration of isobaric desorption process with microwave heating was achieved 98.2% shorter than that of conventional heating system.
