Abstract
A refrigeration cycle is proposed for development which can reduce compressor work and increase cooling effect, by eliminating a portion of the irreversabilities associated with the reverse-rankine cycle refrigeration process. This process improves efficiency without the use of complex turbines, multi-stage architecures, or mechanical expanders, all of which add system complexity and reduce reliability.
