The technology of adsorption chiller is an efficient way of heat conversion. It can significantly reduce environmental pollution and improve energy efficiency. This paper deals with numerical study of refrigeration systems with silica gel/water pairs with mass recovery. The model is validated with experimental results from the ENERBAT platform. Numerical results are in good agreement with those of experiment. A process of mass recovery is added to study its the effect on the performances of the system. The effect of hot water temperature, cooling water temperature, chilled water temperature and cycle time, on the coefficient of performance (COP), the specific cooling capacity (SCP), the cycled mass, the evaporator outlet temperature and efficiency system are investigated in order to extrapolate the results in the Tunisian climate and to determine their optimum values able to maximize the performance of the system under analysis. The simulation calculation indicates a COP value of 0.7 with a driving source temperature of 85°C in combination with coolant inlet and chilled water inlet temperature of 40°C and 15°C, respectively. The most optimum adsorptiondesorption cycle time is approximately 1240s based on the performance from COP and SCP, achieving a SCP of 400 W/kg.
