By the end of the course students will;
- be able to perform transient cooling load analysis and to select design cooling load components as sensible vs. latent for refrigeration purposes.
- adapt the cycle modifications to improve cycle performance and/or to meet the requirements of a given application.
- figure out the common types of refrigerants in terms of relevant thermophysical properties including ODP considering their usage areas.
- explain constructional and operational features of various types of condensers and evaporators; basis for their classification.
- perform thermal design and performance analysis of various types of condensers and evaporators with emphasis given on heat transfer augmentation and extended surfaces.
- analize the means of mechanical compression used in vapor compression refrigeration cycles; positive and non-positive displacement compressors.
- perform basic cycle analysis for absorption refrigeration systems.
- list the types and know the fundamentals of novel cooling techniques
