Abstract: The paper aims to overview various mathematical models for modeling the simultaneous heat and mass transfer process in the liquid desiccant dehumidifier. Firstly, the dehumidification principle is introduced briefly. Then the models are interpreted in terms of two classes of dehumidifiers. For the adiabatic dehumidifier, the models are mainly classified into three types: finite difference model, effectiveness NTU (ε-NTU) model, and simplified models. For the internally cooled dehumidifier, there are also three kinds of models: models without considering liquid film thickness, models considering uniform liquid film thickness, and models considering variable liquid film thickness. This review is meaningful for comprehending the development process and research status of the models and choosing suitable models for prediction. In addition, some suggestions are proposed for the model improvement.
