Summary

In this paper a thermally coupled Stirling-type two-stage pulse tube cryocoolers (TSPTC) is studied using a one-dimensional (1-D) CFD code. After validating the results of the simulations, effects of synchronous utilization of multi-mesh regenerator and double-inlet on the performance of the TSPTC are investigated. Results of simulations show that non-oscillating friction factors do not possess sufficient accuracy for the calculation of oscillating friction losses in non-porous media. Whereas, using the oscillating friction factor of non-porous media leads to sufficient accurate results. According to the results, using multi-mesh regenerator and double-inlet increases the COP and decreases the minimum attainable temperature of the system. It is observed that a minimum temperature of 18.2 K is attainable using optimum multi-mesh regenerator and double-inlet; whereas, for a simple TSPTC with a uniform mesh regenerator, a minimum temperature of 26.4 K is concluded
