Abstract
TO ANALYZE THE EFFECT OF A REFRIGERANT ON THE CAPACITY OF REFRIGERATION EQUIPMENT THE THERMODYNAMIC PROPERTIES OF THE REFRIGERANT MUST BE KNOWN. MAINSTREAM WILL DEVELOP THE THERMODYNAMIC PROPERTIES OF VARIOUS BINARY AND TERNARY REFRIGERANT MIXTURES USING AN EQUATION OF STATE APPROPRIATE FOR REFRIGERANT MIXTURES. VARIOUS AZEOTROPIC AND NON-AZEOTROPIC MISTURES WILL BE IDENTIFIED, AND THE NECESSARY CRITICAL DATA AND INVARY INTERACTION COEFFICIENTS FOR THE MIXTURES WILL BE COMPILED. A REFRIGERATION SYSTEM SIMULATOR WILL BE DEVELOPED, WITH A WIDE RANGE OF REFRIGERATION COMPONENTS, THAT WILL CALCULATE THE THERMODYNAMIC PERFORMANCE OF REFRIGERANTS IN VARIOUS REFRIGERATION SYSTEMS. THIS PROJECT WILL ALSO ANALYZE THE EFFECT THESE MIXTURES HAVE ON REFRIGERATION COMPONENTS. THE SELECTION OF THE OPTIMUM REFRIGERANT FOR A SPECIFIC REFRIGERATION SYSTEM CAN ALSO BE ACCOMPLISHED.
