Computer Modeling of the Vapor Compression Cycle With Constant Flow Area Expansion Device. Final Report (NBS Building Science Series 155)
Piotr A. Domanski, David Didion
An analysis of the vapor compression cycle and the main components of an air source heat pump during steady-state operation has been performed with emphasis on fundamental phenomena taking place between key locations in the refrigerant system. The basis of the general heat pump model formulation is the logic which links the analytical models of heat pump components together in a format requiring an iterative solution of refrigerant pressure, enthalpy and mass balances. The modeling effort emphasis was on the local thermodynamic phenomena which were described by fundamental heat transfer equations and equation of state relationships among material properties.
