Résumé

The aim of this research was to study experimentally the thermodynamic behavior of a typical household refrigerator, by varying the vacuum insulation panel (VIP) coverage area and positioning around the cabinet. To this end, 16 samples of the same refrigerator model were constructed with distinct VIP arrangements and subjected to exhaustive reverse heat leakage) (RHL) and energy consumption tests. As expected, it was found that the energy consumption is dependent on both the coverage area and the positioning. The data gathered was analyzed statically in order to determine the most promising areas for the installation of the panels. Energy savings of 6% and 11% were observed when the panels were installed on the doors and on the rear wall, respectively. Overall, it was found that a coverage area of 56% reduces the energy consumption by 21%.
