Abstract: 

This thesis presents the experimental testing results of a novel triple-state sorption chiller with integrated cold storage. The performance of the chiller was measured for hot water inlet temperatures between 65°C and 95°C, heat rejection inlet temperatures between 15°C and 35°C, and chilled water inlet temperatures between 10°C and 25°C. The performance data collected during these tests were then used to develop a Microsoft Excel-based model for implementation in the TRNSYS simulation software. The output of the model was then compared to the results of a five hour experimental charge test in which the inlet temperatures were varied throughout the experiment, resulting in a 0.7% error in the heat input energy and a 1.3% error in the heat rejection energy.
