In this paper, we present a numerical study of a single-stage absorption refrigeration machine, operating with a couple of water-ammonia fluids, equipped with a distillation column and associated with a solar heating system using solar collectors.
The study has showed the benefit of using the distillation column which is manifested by:
The decrease of the operating temperature,
The improvement of the coefficient of performance,
Surface reduction of the solar collectors,
The improvement of the solar coefficient of performance.
The solar study shows that the absorption refrigeration machine equipped with a distillation column is better suited to solar energy with significantly better performance compared to the simple absorption refrigeration machine.
