dc.description.abstractThe treatment of humidity on HVAC systems is crucial when a satisfactory indoor air quality needs to be reached. Traditional HVAC systems meet the latent cooling load by reducing the air temperature until its dew point, heating subsequently the air in order to reach the supply temperature for user comfort, with the energy waste this entails. On the other hand desiccant wheels requires normally an excessive post-cooling because of employed regeneration temperatures of around 70-80 ºC. In this paper the design and simulation models and testing results at laboratory scale of a hybrid liquid desiccant system (HLDS), developed in the frame of the EU project nanoCOOl, are presented. The HLDS is especially suited for applications with a low SHR (Sensible Heat ratio) and high ventilation requirements in tropical or subtropical climates. The aim of the project is to validate the developed technology for a good indoor environment quality, achieving the required ventilation needs, a good occupant comfort by the treatment of temperature and humidity to reach comfort conditions, avoiding the generation of moulds and microbial growth due to the antimicrobial properties of the LiCl. Detailed models of the HLDS components have been implemented in Engineering Equation Solver (EES) [1], and the whole model of the prototype has been developed, as well. The key parameters for the simulated HLDS, H&MTC (Heat&Mass transfer coefficients) have been experimentally obtained, testing the proof of concept absorber /regenerator in a test bench specially developed at laboratory scale[2]. The obtained values are in agreement with the correlations proposed by Bykov [3] (HTC) and Queiroz [4] (MTC).es_ES
