Period and duration: 1 year from march 2020 to February 2021.
The work is part of the French FRAISE ANR project dedicated to the development of a LiBr/H2O absorption air conditioning systems for automotive application. The objective is to reduce the CO2 emissions due to air conditioning by replacing the classical compression air conditioning system by an absorption air conditioning system driven by the heat exhaust of the engine. The project concerns more particularly the development of new compact generator used to concentrate the solution. Two different flat plate generators will be investigated and compared in term of compactness and performances: A falling film generator, and a partially flooded regenerator. 2 test sections reproducing the heat and mass transfer within the solution in a single channel will be used for that aim, reproducing the boundary conditions and the working conditions of the desorber.
