Refrigeration and heat pump advances for efficiency and sustainability
Recent Developments in Refrigeration and Heat Pump Technologies reviews the field's latest advances with an eye toward efficiency. Relevant to manufacturers, researchers, designers, and users, this book reflects the evolution of system and control technology in response to the demand for minimal environmental impact. Topics include absorption cycle refrigeration, electronic controls, compact heat exchangers, computational fluid dynamics, fast-cycle absorption refrigeration, inverter-controlled circular and pump technology, and innovations in vapor absorption cycles.
Design without compromise - a new perspective on refrigeration and heat pump technologies; electronic controls and their part in system optimization; theory and practice of H20-LiBr vapour absorption cycle refrigerators; the contribution of compact heat exchangers to reducing capital cost; investigating the sustainable development of domestic refrigerating systems working in an HFC-134a environment; the application of computational fluid dynamics to the design of refrigeration systems; fast-cycle adsorption - the effective alternative; the contribution of inverter-controlled circulator and pump technology in increasing the energy efficiency and reducing the environmental impact of refrigeration and heat pump systems; innovations in vapour adsorption cycles.
