This practical handbook provides the reader with a comprehensive treatment of Solar Air Conditioning (SAC) systems. SAC systems can dramatically reduce the energy demand for cooling buildings using of the solar energy because they exploit the resource when the demand for cooling is the highest. The book gives the basic principles of air handling processes and components in SAC systems. It describes the available SAC cycles. It provides the reader with practical rules for the design and the selection of possible solutions. Performance indicators are described according to the 'standards' and the agreement discussed in the scientific community and in International Energy Agency research groups. A specific chapter highlights how to achieve the best results also implementing control system and strategies in the proper way. The book indicates and describes the most diffused tools for decision making and design of SAC in order to guide the designer in the choice of the technology according to the application and the climate. Case studies give the opportunity to understand what 'to do and not to do'.
