Refreshing air remains a crucial problem in warm climates where electricity consumption for air conditioning has become excessive and irrational for several years, notably in Algeria. Research in this field is increasingly oriented towards new techniques that can reduce costs and environmental impacts. Among these techniques, the evaporative dew point cooling technology is the most promising as it can cool outdoor air to temperatures below its wet bulb temperature. The aim of this work is to model and design a dew point cooler for french and algerian climates. This model is used to study the effect of the cooler parameters such as its length, water temperature and working air ratio on its cooling effectiveness and supply temperature.
