This paper presents the theoretical analysis of the performance of solar powered combined adsorption refrigeration cycles that has been designed for Singapore and Malaysia and similar tropical regions using evacuated tube solar collectors. This novel cycle amalgamates the activated carbon (AC)-R507A as the bottoming cycle and activated carbon-R134a cycle as the topping cycle and deliver refrigeration load as low as �10 �C at the bottoming cycle. A simulation program has been developed for modeling and performance evaluation for the solar driven combined adsorption refrigeration cycle using the meteorological
data of Singapore and Malaysia. The results show that the combined cycle is in phase with the weather. The optimum cooling capacity, coefficient of performance (COP) and chiller efficiency are calculated in terms of cycle time, switching time, regeneration and brine inlet temperatures.
