Summary

For the prevailing CO2 micro-channel gas-cooler (MCGC) mathematical modeling research, a big challenge for an efficient numerical model is the trade-off between fast calculation and high-precision considering the specific properties of CO2 . The main purpose of this work is to propose a regression method with multiple variables for CO2 MCGC model based on the combination of Distributed Parameter Model (DPM) and Genetic algorithm (GA). The GA based prediction model of MCGC is established, which takes cor- relation coefficients and mean squared error into consideration. A test rig of CO2 MCGC is developed, and the experimental data used to validate the MCGC model are collected. The fixed-point iteration algorithm is utilized to reduce the complexity of simulation to accelerate the iteration speed. Moreover, an improved Taylor series expansion-based method for fast calculation of working fluid properties was proposed. The model precision was analyzed by comparing the prediction results with conducted experimental data. The improved CO2-to-air MCGC model enables to predict refrigerant outlet temperature and pressure drop within a maximum deviation of 1.2 °C and 2 kPa against the experimental data.
