The heat and mass transfer process between the falling liquid desiccant(TEG) film and the air in counter flow at the dehumidifier of desiccant cooling system were investigated. The governing equations with appropriate boundary and interfacial conditions describing the physical problems were solved by numerical analysis. As a result, the effects of the design parameters and the outside air conditions on the rates of dehumidification and sensible cooling were discussed. The results of the dehumidification and sensible cooling rates were compared with those of the cross flow at the same conditions.
