Access to potable water is a global issue as 844 million people lack access to clean water. Atmospheric water generation can address this by generating potable water from the water vapor present in air. One technology to be used is the vapor compression cycle (VCC), which generates water from ambient air by creating a cold surface where water vapor will condense. The parameters for condensation are dependent upon ambient conditions. The scope of this project is to design and build a VCC to generate 500cc/hour of water. The system was simulated using the thermodynamic and heat transfer phenomena in the VCC to determine the design parameters. The results dictated component purchasing and hardware assembly as a proof of concept for future community integration in hydroponic greenhouses.
