Abstract: THIS THESIS FOCUSES ON THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL ANALYSES INCLUDING OPTIMIZATIONS OF A SOLAR/WASTE HEAT ASSISTED AIR-CONDITIONING SYSTEM COMPRISING MEMBRANE AND DESICCANT TECHNOLOGIES AND AN ELECTRICITY-EFFICIENT REFRIGERATION COOLING SYSTEM FOR APPLICATIONS IN THE TROPICS. THIS RESEARCH AIMS AT REDUCING A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF AIR-CONDITIONING LOADS ON THE REFRIGERATION SYSTEM USING AN INNOVATIVE HEAT-DRIVEN TWO-STAGE DEHUMIDIFICATION/ENERGY RECOVERY SYSTEM. PHYSICAL MODELS FOR THE TWO-STAGE SYSTEM INCLUDING A MEMBRANE-BASED ENTHALPY EXCHANGER AND AN EVAPORATIVELY COOLED DESICCANT DEHUMIDIFICATION SYSTEM ARE DEVELOPED AND VALIDATED BY EXPERIMENTAL DATA ACQUIRED FROM A TEST-BENCH IN SERIS-SINGAPORE. THE PERFORMANCE OF THE PROPOSED TWO-STAGE SYSTEM IS ASSESSED EXPERIMENTALLY AND ANALYTICALLY. CONCEIVABLE MATERIALS ARE CHARACTERIZED EXPERIMENTALLY IN ORDER TO PROVIDE NECESSARY INFORMATION FOR SIMULATION OF THE SUB-SYSTEMS. THE LAST PART OF THE THESIS DEALS WITH INTENSIVE OPTIMIZATION
