    Abstract

    The performance of an absorber is of paramount importance when considering the overall performance of an absorption-cycle heat pump. Thus, a thorough understanding of the absorption process and a means of predicting the performance of an absorber are useful. For these reasons, a model of the absorption process in a simple absorber, using lithium-bromide and water as the working fluids, was developed. Subsequently, the model was applied to a particular absorber through the use of a computer program. Using this program, the effect on absorber performance due to the variance of several parameters was analyzed. The results of the absorber performance simulations are also presented.
