Abstract:

This paper describes a semi-theoretical simulation model, CYCLE11 C02, for a transcritical carbon dioxide vapor-compression refrigeration cycle. CYCLE11 CO2 is based on an earlier simulation model, CYCLE11-UA, developed at the National Institutes of Standards and Technology for evaluating alternative refrigerants and refrigerant mixtures. Here we describe CYCLE11 CO2, its inputs, its outputs, and present some typical simulation results. The simulation results are compared to experimental data.
