Thermal Performance Analysis of Circular Coil Type Internal Heat Exchanger for Transcritical
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 14, issue 7, 2002, Pages 531~542
systems are under consideration for use as residential/mobile air conditioners. In these systems, an internal heat exchanger is usually adopted to improve both capacity and/or COP of the
system in lower operating pressure range of gas cooler. A program has been developed to analyse the performance of internal heat exchangers using the section-by-section method. The internal heat exchanger of coaxial configuration is first analyzed and fairly good agreements with the data are obtained, And then the internal heat exchanger of multiple circular coil configuration has been investigated. The results obtained from the parametric study provide the guidelines for the initial design and manufacturing concepts of the internal heat exchanger in transcritical
system. Further studies are necessary to develop the heat transfer correlations of carbon dioxide in the tubes to obtain more accurate results.
Evaluation of Ventilation Efficiency for Various Gravity Ventilators
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 14, issue 7, 2002, Pages 543~551
Gravity ventilators allow the escape of the warm air and air contaminants due to both (either) buoyancy and (or) convection. As a natural ventilation strategy, various gravity ventilators can be installed on the roof. Ventilation efficiency could be affected by various parameters, such as, area of openings, wind velocity and incidence angle, temperature difference between inside and outside, and shape of ventilator. Especially, the shape of roof gravity ventilator might be one of influencing factors for the effective ventilation. The window type gravity ventilators are frequently installed instead of general (standard) gravity ventilator. However, the ventilation efficiencies of them were not proved yet. To compare the ventilation efficiency, general type ventilator and two window type ventilators were numerically tested. Mean age of air, temperature and CO concentration were predicted by using commercial CFD code, AIRPAK (Ver. 2.0) with various conditions. The predicted result showed that general type ventilator is more effective for natural ventilation than window type ventilators.
Fault Detection and Diagnosis of an Air Handling Unit Based on Rule Bases
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 14, issue 7, 2002, Pages 552~559
The fault detection and diagnosis (FDD) technology may be applied in order to decrease the energy consumption and the maintenance cost of the air conditioning system. In this study, rule bases and curve fitting models were used to detect faults in an air handling unit. Gradually progressed faults, such as the fan speed degradation, the coil water leakage, the humidifier nozzle clogging, the sensor degradation and the damper stoppage, were applied to the developed FBD system. Simulation results show good detections and diagnoses of these faults. Therefore, this method may be effectively used for the fault detection and diagnosis of the air handling unit.
Partial Fault Detection of Air-conditioning System by Neural Network Algorithm using Data Preprocessing Method
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 14, issue 7, 2002, Pages 560~566
The fault detection and diagnosis technology may be applied in order to decrease the energy consumption and the maintenance cost of the air-conditioning system. In this study, two different types of faults in the air-conditioning system, such as the condenser fouling and the evaporator fan slowdown, were considered. The neural network algorithm combined with data preprocessor was developed and applied to detect the faults of the real system. Test results show that this method is very effective to detect the faults in the air-conditioning system. Therefore, this developed method can be used for the development of the air-conditioner fault detection system.
A Numerical Analysis on the Effect of Parameters for the Flow Rate through the Tunnel with Jet Fan Ventilating System
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 14, issue 7, 2002, Pages 567~574
In the present study, ventilation flow rates and pressure rises through a road tunnel are simulated numerically using CFD with the various conditions such as roughness height, swirl angle of jet fan, entrance and exit effect and hub to tip ratio. By using a modified wall function, friction factor can be predicted under 10％ of error with respect to the Moody chart for the circular pipe flow and 15％, for the present tunnel. For more precise design, the effects of the swirl angle and hub to tip ratio of jet fan, which is not included in the theoretical equation of pressure rise by jet fan are necessary to be considered.
R-22 and R-410A Condensation in Flat Aluminum Multi-Channel Tubes
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 14, issue 7, 2002, Pages 575~583
In this study, condensation heat transfer tests were conducted in flat aluminum multi-channel tubes using R-410A, and the results are compared with those of R-22. Two internal geometries were tested; one with a smooth inner surface and the other with micro-fins. Data are presented for the following range of variables; vapor quality (0.1~0.9), mass flux (200~600 kg/
s) and heat flux (5~15 ㎾/
). Results show that the effect of surface tension drainage on the fin surface is more pronounced for R-22 than R-410A. The smaller Weber number for R-22 may be responsible. For the smooth tube, the heat transfer coefficient of R-410A is slightly larger than that of R-22. For the micro-fin tube, however, the reverse is true. Possible reasoning is provided considering the physical properties of the refrigerants. For the smooth tube, a correlation of Akers et at. type predicts the data reasonably well. For the micro-fin tube, the Yang and Webb model was modified to correlate the present data.
A Study on the Heat and Gas Flow for Fire Simulation in a Tunnel
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 14, issue 7, 2002, Pages 584~591
The objective of the present study is to develop a model to predict heat and gas flow movement by fire in a tunnel. The model includes component models such as turbulence model, combustion model, fire model, jet fan model, etc. It has been validated using the data from Memorial Tunnel Fire Ventilation Test Program. The predictions are in good quantitative agreement with the experimental data in the far-field region of the tunnel. It should be further investigated to develop models for radiation between surfaces, for composite boundary conditions for conduction and convection, and for vigorous turbulent mixing in a tunnel especially for a large size of fire.
Flow Control and Heat Transfer Enhancement from a Heated Block by an Inflow Pulsation (I) Flow Field Computation
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 14, issue 7, 2002, Pages 592~598
The characteristics of a pulsating flow field from a heated block representing heat-dissipating electronic component in a channel have been numerically investigated. At the channel inlet a pulsating sinusoidal flow is imposed. The Reynolds number based on the channel height (H) is fixed at Re=500, and the forcing frequency is varied in the range of
. Numerical results on the time-dependent flow field are obtained and averaged over a cycle of pulsation. The effect of the important governing parameters such as the Strouhal number is investigated in detail. The results indicate that the recirculating flow behind the block is substantially affected by the pulsation frequency. To characterize the periodic vortex shedding due to the inflow pulsation, numerical flow visualizations are carried out.

uniform temperature. The surfaces of the block are taken at a constant higher temperature. The channel walls are assumed to be adiabatic. Results on the time-dependent temperature field are obtained and averaged over a cycle of pulsation. The effect of the important governing parameters, such as the Strouhal number on the flow and the heat transfer is investigated in detail. The results indicate that the recirculating flow behind the block are substantially affected by the pulsation frequency. These, in turn, have a strong influence on the thermal transport from the heated element to the pulsating flow. The frequency at which the enhancement is maximum is determined.
A Study on the Application of the Dehumidification System for Radiant Floor Cooling Using Ondol
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 14, issue 7, 2002, Pages 607~616
This study has been conducted to evaluate the applicability of the control method in the dehumidification-integrated radiant floor cooling system in terms of stability of the room air temperature and the control variables through experiments. To do this, the relationship between the control variables in preventing floor surface condensation is first analyzed and the control method is predetermined through simulations. The results are as follows. First, it is necessary to determine the operation status of the dehumidification system according to the relationship between floor surface temperature and dew point temperature in the conditioned space. Second, outdoor reset with indoor temperature feedback control is better than on/off bang-bang control with respect to temperature stability in controlling the room air temperature and the possibility of energy savings. Finally, the humidity sensor can be located with the current thermostat in that there are small differences in absolute humidity in vertical distribution.
