Capability Optimization of refrigerant Circuitry for a Finned Tube Heat Exchanger-A Theoretical Review

Authors(1) :-Abhishek Jain

Increased concerns about climate change and day by day increment in energy cost has created the importance of Refrigeration & Air Conditioning system with high COP. COP of a Vapour Compression Refrigeration system is mainly influenced by the effectiveness of the Heat Exchanger being Employed. Optimization in the design of Heat Exchanger is highly desirable to improve their effectiveness and reduce the cost of production. For Finned Tube Exchanger, one of the most important design parameter is the sequence in which tube are connected to define the path of flow of Refrigerant through the coil i.e. Circuit of flow. In this paper researcher has presented theoretical review of an evaporator and condenser design program EVAP-COND for Finned Tube Heat Exchanger. This incorporates a computational intelligence module, ISHED (Intelligent system for Heat Exchanger Design) for optimization of circuit of refrigerant.
