1D model of an active magnetic regenerator.

Number: sect. 3

Author(s) : NIKKOLA P., MAHMED C., BALLI M., et al.


The current state of the development of the 1D active magnetic regenerator model at the IGT is described. The system of two partial differential equations is discretized with the finite differences method backward in time and solved with the tridiagonal matrix algorithm. New features, not found in the literature, are thermal losses in the regenerator, parasitic heat exchange, and calculation of the AMR cycle output power in steady state. The model is implemented in MATLAB and has a graphical user interface.
