  7. Abstract:
  8. Reducing fossil fuels and increasing urban air pollution, has made the automotive industry to reduce the fuel consumption of their engines by various approaches. Removing the compressor of air conditioning system by replacing the absorption chiller instead of inverse rankin cycle is a shortcut to reduce the fuel consumption which at the same time reduces costs of using air conditioning system for occupants. Design of a 3 kW lithium bromide-water absorbent chiller has verified based on environmental conditions and car space limitations and using the combustion products as the heat source of system. K4M engine of L90 sedan Car as an internal combustion engine sample’s exhaust manifold has been engineered to detect the possibility of launching this system. Results show that engine can support the system in 2500 rpm for nominal capacity of system and will be less productive in the lower speeds. This means that launching of the system is absolutely operational on hybrid vehicles and equipped with CVT gearbox vehicles
