Development of simulation for refrigeration using HFC134a.


R134a has been used as the alternative refrigerant for freezer-refrigerators. The authors tried to develop a simulation program. The balancing points of the refrigeration cycle were calculated. An evaluation apparatus was developed in order to obtain the unknown characteristics about the compressor, the capillary tube and the heat exchanger with the suction pipe. As a result, reasonable agreement was obtained between the simulation and experimental results. This simulation program can be used as a development tool for the refrigerator using R134a.
