Climate change is the hottest topic today on earth. Traditional HVAC’s harm the environment and stand out to be a major contributor to global warming. One of the many techniques to mitigate the current climate crisis is by utilizing the abundantly available solar radiation. Solar evacuated tube collectors are used to absorb solar radiation. This solar power is used to provide solar cooling technologies. Unlike the conventional HVAC’s thermally driven absorption cooling is a boon in today’s era. In the following research work, the study aims to provide numerical modeling of a solar assisted air-conditioning unit through the first law of thermodynamics using mass balancing equations for the province of Delhi in July. This research work’s aim is to build and evaluate a Li-Br absorption cooler with a capacity of 1 KW. This paper aims to provide characteristic design features of components and measures the efficiency of the system at operating conditions. PCM based thermal energy storage tank is adopted which helps to supply cold air even at no sunlight hours. As a result of this research study, such solar assisted air conditioners turn out to be a chosen solution for sustainability.
