Pervious work on solar-powered ejector air-conditioning system is updated for refrigerant R-142b to replace R-114 as the working fluid. Such update offers viable alternative to the system, which previously used the now banned R-114. Cycles with and without compression enhancements are analyzed to produce variety of systems to suit variety of local considerations. The result of the analysis and simulation introduces not only an environmentally compatible but also a more efficient system.
