The manuscript entitled “Performance Analyses of Photovoltaic Thermal Integrated Concentrator Collector Combined with Single Effect Absorption Cooling Cycle: Constant Flow Rate Mode” proposed a novel refrigeration system that operated through fully covered semi transparent photovoltaic thermal integrated concentrator collectors. This novel system will produce air-conditioning/refrigeration/cooling without using electricity. The system will be most suitable and applicable for rural areas where there is no electricity. It is a self-sustained system up to five hours of operation to produce air-conditioning/refrigeration along with some electricity generation using solar energy. The detailed energy and exergy analyses of this novel system have been carried out using MATLAB."
