The performance of an advanced adsorption chiller, namely, 'reheat two-stage' has been investigated experimentally in the present study. The performances in terms of specific cooling power (SCP) and COP are compared with those of conventional single and two-stage chiller. Results show that the reheat two-stage chiller provides more SCP values than those provided by conventional single-stage chiller while it provides better COP values for relatively low heat source temperature. The reheat two-stage chiller also provides almost same cooling capacity comparing with two-stage chiller for the low temperature heat source, while it provides higher COP value than that provided by two-stage chiller. Experimental results also show that the overall performance of the reheat two-stage chiller is always higher than that of conventional single and two-stage adsorption cycle even the temperature of the heat source is fluctuated between 55 and 80 °C.
