The heat flowrate and pressure dorp of $CO_2$ in a multi-tube-in-tube helical coil type gas cooler were predicted using LMTD method and compared with the experimental data. The mass flowrate of $CO_2$ and coolant were varied from 0.06 to 0.075 [kg/s], and the cooling pressure of gas cooler were from 8 to 10 [MPa], respectively. The LMTD method is used to predict the heat flowrate and pressure drop of supercritical $CO_2$ during in-tube cooling. The equations used by LMTD method were Gnielinski correlation for $CO_2$ and Dittus-Boelter correlation for coolant, respectively. The equation used to predict the pressure drop of $CO_2$ and coolant is Blasius correlation. In comparison of heat flowrate and pressure drop of $CO_2$ measured by experiment to that predicted by LMTD method, the experimental heat flowrate and pressure drop of $CO_2$ in the multi-tube-in-tube helical coil type gas cooler shows a relatively good agreement with that predicted by LMTD method.

다중관식 헬리컬 코일형 가스냉각기내 $CO_2$의 열유량과 압력강하는 LMTD 방식을 이용하여 예측하였고 그 결과를 실험값과 비교하였다. $CO_2$와 냉각수의 유량은 각각 0.06~0.075 kg/s이고, 가스냉각기의 냉각압력은 8~10 MPa이다. 초임계 $CO_2$의 냉각시의 열유량과 압력강하는 LMTD 방식을 이용하여 예측하였고, 이때 냉매측 열전달과 압력강하식은 각각 Gnielinski와 Dittus-Boelter 식을 사용하였다. LMTD법으로 예측한 값과 실험값을 비교한 결과, $CO_2$의 열유량과 압력강하는 상대적으로 좋은 일치를 보였다.
