The use of refrigeration systems in building utility systems has been widely used since the twentieth century. However, the data shows that there are many problems that arise and are dangerous to the environment, such as global warming and high energy consumption rates. Several studies using liquid desiccants have shown significant results in overcoming this problem. Through independent temperature and humidity control, the desiccant air conditioning (DAC) system has multiple functions advantages (for example, efficient moisture control, no ozone-depleting coolant and easy regeneration integration, etc) Compared with the traditional vapor compression cooling system, it is becoming more and more attractive to research attention. Many studies have been conducted to improve the overall performance of the DAC system, improve system configuration and optimization by integrating various energy technologies system design and control. This article introduces a literature review of the latest research progress on liquid desiccant dehumidification and air conditioning systems.
