1 Thermodynamics The Vapor Compression Refrigeration Cycle Used to provide refrigeration and cooling. Comes in many sizes and types (almost as many types as there are air conditioning engineers!!) We’ll learn that this cycle can be reversed and used to heat. There are many other cycles that can be used to cool or refrigerate ( absorption cycles, air cycles, desiccant cycles, etc.) 250 ton water cooled, centrifugal chiller 1 ton cooling = 12,000 btu/h cooling capacity

2 Thermodynamics VAPOR COMPRESSION REFRIGERATION H. A. . . Ingley PhD,PE Refrigeration Cycle The Ideal Cycle Isentropic compression of a refrigerant with a compressor Constant pressure heat rejection in a condenser heat exchanger Isenthalpic expansion through a throttling device Constant pressure heat addition in an evaporator heat exchanger Three kinds of engineering devices: heat exchanger, piston/cylinder device, throttling valve In a split system, these components are outside the house. In a split system, these components are inside the house.
