Résumé

This paper presents an experimental study of the influence of a variable geometry ejector (VGE) design on the performance of a small-scale, 1.5 kW nominal capacity solar heat driven ejector air-conditioning system under real-life working conditions. Under variable operating conditions (e.g. solar radiation, ambient temperature) fixed geometry ejector performs poorly, therefore the objective of the present work was to prove the benefit of the VGE concept. In the experimentally tested VGE the area ratio through a movable spindle (SP) and the nozzle exit position (NXP) can be adjusted in order to respond to the operating conditions. The results showed very stable operation of the cooling cycle during the experiments. Both NXP, SP had considerable influences on the cooling cycle performance. An optimal NXP was identified, which did not change with various operating conditions. Similarly, SP also showed an optimum; however, the optimum point depended strongly on the operating conditions. The results clearly indicated the benefit of using the VGE design over the fixed geometry. COP improvement was as high as 24% with a maximum of 0.29 corresponding to a cooling capacity of 1.6 kW when compared to a fixed geometry ejector. The study also confirmed the importance of using a variable-speed pump in the ejector cycle
