Title: Condensadores de Tubo con Aletas Optimizacion Mediante Sistema Inteligente
Published: February 01, 2008
Abstract: The refrigerant circuitry influences a heat exchanger's attainable capacity. Typically, a design engineer specifies a circuitry and validates it using a simulation model or laboratory test. The circuitry optimization process can be improved by using intelligent search techniques. This paper presents experiments with a novel intelligent optimization module, ISHED (Intelligent System for Heat Exchanger Design), applied to maximize capacity through circuitry design of finned-tube condensers. The module operates in a semi-Darwinian mode and seeks refrigerant circuitry designs that maximize the condenser capacity for specified operating conditions and condenser slab design constraints. Examples of optimization runs for six different refrigerants are included. ISHED demonstrated the ability to generate circuitry architectures with capacities equal to or superior to those prepared manually, particularly for cases involving non-uniform air distribution.
