Thermoacoustic refrigeration and acoustic compression.

Author(s) : HARA T.


Thermal acoustic refrigeration is an in-kind technology that needs considerable development before its feasibility can be determined. Long-term estimates of efficiency exceeding vapour compression refrigeration are based on speaker, or sound generator, efficiency reaching 80-90%. Sound generator efficiencies today are approximately 40%.
