Abstract

EVAP-COND is a software package that contains NIST's simulation models for a finned-tube evaporator and condenser. The “tube-by-tube” modeling scheme allows for specifying complex refrigerant circuits, modeling refrigerant distribution between these circuits, and accounting for non-uniform air distribution. Simulation results also include local parameters for each tube such as inlet and outlet quality, temperature, enthalpy, entropy, pressure drop, mass flow rate for refrigerant and inlet and outlet temperature for air. EVAP-COND capabilities include optimization of refrigerant circuitry to maximize heat exchanger’s capacity.
