1) In accordance with the first law of thermodynamics, an 850kW single-effect absorption chiller
with a COP of 0.84 will require a heat source of _______ kW and a heat rejection sink of
2) If you were to change the absorption chiller specification to a double effect absorption chiller
with a COP of 1.33, the heat source requirement would change to be ______ kW to power the
cycle and a heat rejection sink of _______ kW would be needed.
3) Describe what the difference between single and double effect absorption chillers in terms of
their heat source requirements. Reference should be made to difference in temperature
requirements and a description on an installation that would be suitable for the deployment of
4) You have installed a large absorption chiller that provided a chilled water output of 4152kWh
in the last 12 months. The electric chiller that this machine replaced operated at an average COP
of 4.3. How much electricity did you save in the last 12 months?
