A vehicle climate control system includes a thermal-adsorption heat pump driven by engine exhaust heat, the heat pump including two adsorbers asynchronously switching between adsorbing and desorbing modes, each adsorber coupled with a corresponding antifreeze tank via a plurality of refrigerant-containing wick chambers. Cold heat transfer fluid (HTF) flows through the adsorber during the adsorbing mode which causes evaporation of refrigerant from the wick chambers, thereby cooling antifreeze, whereas hot HTF flows through the adsorber during the desorbin...
1. A method for vehicle cabin climate control system, comprising: during engine operation, asynchronously switching first and second adsorbers of a thermal-adsorption heat pump communicating with engine exhaust heat between adsorbing and desorbing modes, the adsorbing adsorber cooling antifreeze via wick chambers and the desorbing adsorber heating antifreeze via wick chambers; andconditioning cabin air via the heated antifreeze or the cooled antifreeze depending on an operating mode of the climate control system. 2. The method of claim 1, wherein an engi...
