In this study, the mathematical model equations for solid desiccant system integrated with indirect evaporative coolers with Maisotsenko - Cycle are presented. The authors chose the modified ε–NTU method to describe heat and mass transfer processes in regenerative indirect evaporative cooler and desiccant wheel. The models based on the ε–NTU method show satisfactory agreement with experimental results. That is why this method allows to analyze and develop the performance of solid desiccant systems. In this study, the models allowed to prove that solid desiccant system with an additional heat exchanger before the desiccant wheel (System 1) obtains higher thermal COP values, higher humidity ratio drop and lower supply airflow temperatures in comparison to system with only one heat exchanger after the desiccant wheel (System 2).
