(25) The heat transfer fluid circulates through four components: (1) Adsorber 1 in adsorption phase, (2) the heat source; (3) Adsorber 2 in desorption phase, and (4) heat sink.
The heat transfer between the adsorber and its contacting heat source or sink varies significantly during the period of the cycle as shown in Figure 3 (b).
As shown in this figure, the system begins the process when Adsorber 1 is heated by the exhaust gas released from the engine.
