温度勾配シフト熱交換器を設けた非共沸混合冷媒冷凍サイクルの特性 Characteristics of a Refrigeration Cycle Using a Zeotropic Refrigerant Mixture with a Temperature Glide Shift Heat Exchanger
HFC zeotropic refrigerant mixture R-407C is one of the promising alternatives for HCFC-22. We have found that the coefficient of performance (COP) of the refrigeration cycle using R-407C is improved by installing a temperature glide shift heat exchanger (TGSX) which takes advantage of zeotropic characteristics to an air-conditioner. We obtained the characteristics of a refrigeration cycle of experimental apparatus with comparison to those of a fundamental refrigeration cycle based on the refrigerant thermodynamic properties. We concluded that the COP improvement ratio of experimental apparatus with the TGSX to that without the TGSX is greater than that ratio which is calculated from the fundamental refrigeration cycle. This proved to be caused by the pressure loss of low pressure side which is not taken into account in the fundamental refrigeration cycle.
