Vapor jet refrigeration system has been a promising research topic by far. This system bears such importance due to using low grade energy instead of the less economical high grade energy necessary for driving the conventional vapor compression refrigeration cycles despite the low COP values. The main purpose of the present work is to introduce a mathematical model to optimally size the single phase supersonic vapor ejector and to give a detailed picture on how the system operating conditions affect the main dimensions of the optimally operated ejectors. On the other hand, this paper is a predesign study of the operating conditions effect on the system performance parameters like the COP, entrainment and area ratios. The model is validated with experimental data mentioned in the literature and it gives high trusted results. Moreover, the model is general as it can be used with any refrigerant. However, the present results belong to the environment friendly hydro-fluoroolefin refrigerant (R1234yf) which will be increasingly adopted and a potential alternative for the currently used hydroflourocarbon (HFC) R134a.
