Abstract

Energy-Energy analysis of present vapour compression refrigeration system is done using isentropic fluid as refrigerants R134a.This thermodynamic analysis is carried out by 2nd law of thermodynamic approach in terms of COPII. The performance of the system both theoretical and actual experimental have been computed in summer condition. The results of proposed title explains the high grade energy consumption by compressor with 1 TR of cooling effect. COPII indicates the actual energy output from the system in summer climate. Due to higher GWP and ODP of R22, R134a can be used for domestic / commercial and industrial applications.
