This paper conducts and compares the computational modelling of two cooling and power systems, integrating organic Rankine cycle (ORC) with adsorption cycles. The kinetic sorption models of MnCl2-EG and MnCl2-EG-Ni@C are established and validated via the data in previous study. The result shows a higher thermal efficiency of utilizing adsorption units as the top user of the heat source. Moreover, it is demonstrated that using the novel sorbents with Ni@C could improve the cooling production and the thermal efficiency of the cogeneration system.

Keywords cogeneration systems, MnCl2-EG-Ni@C, ORC, chemisorption
