I'm doing some calculations on a vapor compression cycle system for my Master Thesis.
My question is:
Does the mass flow change when the refrigerant flows through the (electronic) expansion valve (assuming steady state flow)?
I assume that it doesn't but I can't seem to get...
Calculate Specific Heat Capacity HELP!!!
I having big troubles with how to calculate the specific heat (cp) for refrigerant r134a i gas phase.
I think that assuming ideal gas behavior is a bad idea since this is going to be used in a actual system...
I have values of entropy...
I'm stuck on some thermodynamic calculations and I would really appreciate some help!
I'm trying to calculate the refrigerant temperature inside of an evaporator (two-phase lumped parameter model) based on the exit temperature of the evaporator and the pressure.
I've understood that...
Hi guys, I really need some help with this!
I have this set of equations for an evaporator which I want to calculate x0 and u0 for the steady state
mdotin(hin - hg) + (B1/Ltot)*L1(Tw1 - Tr1) = 0
mdotout(hg - hout) + (B2/Ltot)*L2(Tw2 - Tr2) = 0
mdotin - mdotout = 0
I'm struggling with some equations regarding the enthalpy change over a compressor in a vcc system.
I'm currently working on a model for the whole system and I think I've got all equations except the one describing the enthalpy difference betweeen the inlet and outlet of the...
