In this research, solar desiccant cooling cycles in ventilation and hybrid mode are simulated. To simulate cycles, at first a model for desiccant wheel simulation is presented and a computer code based on experimental correlations is used to solve equations. Then by TRNSYS software a model for solar hot water system is simulated, and eventually by representing a suitable algorithm, computer program for simulating solar desiccant cooling cycles by EES software is developed. For all components of desiccant cycle, the dynamic optimum were based on regeneration temperature and solar fraction, and after optimum, dynamic cycle performance in an office building with an area of 115 m2 located in Bushehr city, capacity of cooling 3 ton refrigeration were analyzed. The results show that solar desiccant cooling cycles in comparison with compression refrigeration cycles with 40% saving in energy consumption and also during the day and in office buildings have a better performance.
