In recent years, significant amounts of studies have been done on modeling and analysis of active magnetic regenerators (AMRs). Depending on the AMR geometry and the magnetocaloric material being modeled, the AMR may not be able to provide the required performance demanded by practical applications. Some AMR models in the literature predict high performance but with relatively low temperature spans at either end of the AMR. Therefore, they may not be sufficient for practical applications, such as providing the heat exchanger temperature spans required for residential and commercial space air conditioning. To remedy this, one solution is cascading of multiple single layer AMRs. In this work, a cascading AMR model is presented and studied. In a cascade configuration, N number of single layer AMRs are connected. The results show that higher hot and cold side temperature differences may be achieved compared to the ones obtained with a single AMR rendering the solution more suitable for use in residential and commercial space conditioning.
