This paper presents Version 4.0 of the CYCLE_D: NIST
Vapor Compression Cycle Design Program. The model can
simulate a basic subcritical or transcritical
refrigeration cycle, both with or without a liquidline/
suction-line heat exchanger. In addition, the model can
simulate a subcritical two-stage economizer cycle, a
subcritical three-stage economizer cycle, and a
subcritical two-stage compression cycle with
intercooling. The model is a user-friendly tool for
screening the performance of single-component
refrigerants and refrigerant mixtures.
