A thermodynamic simulation of a double effect generator heat exchanger absorption refrigeration cycle using biogas as source of energy has been carried out. The binary mixture considered in the present investigation was NH3 – H2O (Ammonia - Water). This simulation was performed in order to investigate the effect of the temperature and pressure of the high temperature generator and the pressure of evaporator have over the Coefficient of Performance (COP) for a constant condenser and absorber temperatures. The basic parameters at various state points of the cycle was computed using standard correlations. The solution circulation rates and volume of biogas required for operation of the cycle are analysed for the variations in operating parameters at the high temperature generator and evaporator.
