The authors demonstrate that supercritical fluids have the following characteristics: a wide range of applications and better practicability when investigating natural working fluid CO2. The supercritical cycle is a current cycle used in air-conditioning systems. This cycle has special characteristics that differ from those of the conventional sub-critical cycle. The system has high thermal efficiency and a maximal COP when used in a heat pump system used to supply hot water. Many characteristics are not only inherent for CO2; other supercritical fluids also have these characteristics.
