I want to make a solar assisted cooling system in Energyplus.

The solar panel is connected to thermal storage, and absorption chiller is operating by heat reserved in thermal storage.

Is it possible to make this system in EnergyPlus?

You'll need:

Have a look at the EnergyPlus example files, especially the ChillerAbsorption.idf or IndirectAbsorptionChiller.idf to see how these are used, and SolarCollectorFlatPlateWater.idf which used solar thermal panels to heat up a storage tank (WaterHeater:Mixed).
