- ... The replacement of HFCs using lower GWP refrigerants in the coming years is a priority to reduce the predicted climate change. The exergy analysis of vapor compression systems can help to identify the feasibility of alternative fluids in existing installations and the potential to improve them. In this sense, this paper presents an exergy analysis of an experimental setup which operates with R134a ...

- ... This paper presents an energy and exergy analysis of a domestic refrigeration system using R1234yf as a drop-in replacement for R134a. We base our analysis on a series of independent tests using two refrigerants, namely R1234yf and R134a. The test equipment consists of a fully instrumented domestic refrigeration system. A computational model is developed to work out the thermodynamic parameters su ...
