Desiccant evaporative cooling (DEC) systems are still at early stage of utilisation and commercialise development. The primary focus of this study is to analyse the simulated performance of DEC in hot and humid climates. Four configurations of one-stage solid desiccant dehumidifiers with two-stage evaporative cooling systems have been simulated using TRNSYS simulation software for a typical test room. The psychrometric process and the coefficient of performance (COP) for each configuration is presented and configurations for the most efficient system have been identified.
