In a hybrid cooling solar thermal systems , a solar collector is used to convert solar energy into heat energy in order to super heat the refrigerant leaving the compressor, and this process helps in the transformation of refrigerant state from gaseous state to the liquid state in upper two-thirds of the condenser instead of the lower two-thirds such as in the traditional air-conditioning systems and this will reduce the energy needed to run the process of cooling .In this research two systems with a capacity of 2 tons each were used, a hybrid air-conditioning system with an evacuated tubes solar collector and a traditional air-conditioning system . The refrigerant of each type was R22.The comparison was in the amount of energy and current consumption of the two systems at the same operating conditions. The energy consumed and the current of the hybrid system were less than the traditional air-conditioning system by 12% and 28.6% respectively, which means that there is a saving in the energy and current consumption as a result of the use of the solar thermal collector.
