In this study, two different indirect evaporative coolers operating with a desiccant wheel are compared theoretically: System A with the regenerative Maisotsenko Cycle (M-Cycle) unit and System B with the cross-flow M-cycle unit. Each system component performance was simulated using the original ε-NTU model. The influence of selected operational factors, such as inlet air temperature, humidity and regeneration air temperature for two system configurations was analysed and compared. It was established, that System B obtains higher cooling capacities and is more sensitive on ambient air humidity changes than System A.
