VICATOS, G; GRYZAGORIDIS, J  and  WANG, S. A car air-conditioning system based on an absorption refrigeration cycle using energy from exhaust gas of an internal combustion engine. J. energy South. Afr. [online]. 2008, vol.19, n.4, pp.6-11. ISSN 2413-3051.

Energy from the exhaust gas of an internal combustion engine is used to power an absorption refrigeration system to air-condition an ordinary passenger car. The theoretical design is verified by a unit that is tested under both laboratory and road-test conditions. For the latter, the unit is installed in a Nissan 1400 truck and the results indicate a successful prototype and encouraging prospects for future development.

Keywords : car air-conditioning; absorption refrigeration; renewable energy.
