1. A THERMODYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF REFRIGERANTS: PERFORMANCE LIMITS OF THE VAPOR COMPRESSION CYCLE
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 10/24/2013
Authors: Piotr A Domanski, J S Brown, Janusz Wojtusiak, Mark O McLinden
Abstract: This paper explores the thermodynamic performance limits of the vapor compression cycle. In particular, we apply evolutionary algorithms to explore the performance of thousands of hypothetical refrigerants defined by their thermodynamic parameter ...
