There are some types of absorption refrigerators which are driven by two different heat sources. In the last paper, the refrigerator driven by hot water and steam which were the waste heat of fuel cell was simulated. In this paper, another type of refrigerator driven by hot water and combustion gas which makes up for the shortage of hot water as the waste heat is simulated and its characteristics are clarified. Furthermore, the optimum control of this machine to use hot water effectively is suggested.
