The main purpose of this research is to analyze and compare the energy performance of two different novel air conditioning systems; one is a dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS) with a parallel system and the other is a heat-pump-integrated liquid-desiccant and evaporative-cooling-assisted 100% outdoor air system (HPLD-IDECOAS). It was assumed that office buildings served by each system were located in six cities representing four different climatic regions in China. The hourly thermal loads of the office buildings meeting the local building design codes of each selected city were predicted by the TRNSYS 18 software package. The hourly thermal load data were imported into the commercial engineering equation solver (EES) program to estimate the operating energy consumption of each system via detailed energy simulations performed using valid system simulation models. The results show that the HPLD-IDECOAS has higher energy-saving potential than the DOAS with a parallel system in climate regions with high humidity, whereas, in dry regions, the difference in energy consumption between the two systems was not significant.
