This work describes the air-conditioning solar driven system installed at the premises of the company RDmes, located in Terrassa (about 25 km inland from Barcelona). Main components that make up the system are a small-capacity adsorption machine of 8 kW, a solar field of flat plate single glazed collectors with a small buffer tank, a cold distribution system through a radiant ceiling and liquid-to-ambient heat exchanger as auxiliary temperature source. The engineering of the plant has been carried out by using detailed transient modelling tools developed by RDmes. Sensors and hardware for detailed measuring and control of the plant have been installed in order to analyze the actual performance. First measurements of the plant will be obtained during summer 2010. This work addresses details on the engineering and planning process.
