Experimental Study on Performance Evaluation of System A/C using PWM or Inverter Method (Heating Characteristics at Low Temperature Conditions)
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 15, issue 7, 2003, Pages 551~556
The present study concerns an experiment on the heating characteristics of a system air-conditioner (A/C) using PWM method or inverter method at low temperature con-ditions. The compressors used are digital scroll type and BLDC inverter type. Under the low outside temperature condition, -5
, heating capacities and COPs are mea-sured by the psychometric calorimeter using air enthalpy method. Also, outlet air temperatures at heating operation mode are measured at -5
. Experimental results show that COPs of the system A/C using a PWM method are more effective than those of the inverter method at heating operation mode. Although the heater is on, COPs of PWM method are similar to those of BLDC inverter method. Moreover, the heating capacities of PWM method at -5
are larger about 10~20% and outlet air tempe-rature at -15
is larger about 10%, compared to the inverter method.
A Numerical Study on Flow around Exhaust Ducts of Flue Gas from Apartment Heating Boiler
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 15, issue 7, 2003, Pages 557~562
Flue gas from apartment heating gas boiler is exhausted outside through an exhaust duct mounted horizontally in a vertical row on the wall. The flue gas includes nitrogen-oxides (NOx) and carbon monoxide. To investigate the possible entrainment of the flue gas into the apartments through the windows, a large eddy simulation (LES) based numerical method is utilized. Distribution of the velocity intensity and temperature around the exhaust ducts is presented for three numerical parameters: exhaust velocity, temperature of the flue gas, and exhaust duct length. The flow field visualized with particles inserted at the ends of the ducts is also presented. The results clearly show that the exhausted flue gas may flow into the apartments when the windows are open.
An Experimental Study of Vapor-Liquid Equilibrium for HFC12S＋Propane Refrigerant Mixtures
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 15, issue 7, 2003, Pages 563~571
The forty vapor-liquid equilibrium data of the binary system, HFC125＋Propane, were measured between 273.15 and 313.15 K at 10 K interval and the composition range 0.2∼0.75, respectively. Experiments were performed in a circulation type apparatus in which the vapor phase was forced through the liquid phase. The composition at equilibrium were mea-sured by gas chromatography, and its response was calibrated using gravimetrically prepared mixtures. Vapor-liquid equilibrium data were calculated by using CSD equation of state and compared with the experimental data.
A Study on the Performance of Water Mist Spray Fire Protection System
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 15, issue 7, 2003, Pages 572~578
The present study was numerically and experimentally performed to investigate the fire suppression performance of water mist spray subjected to thermal radiation in closed space. Downward-directed water mist sprays to interact with an under kerosine pool fire were investigated in test facility The mass mean diameters of water mist droplet were measured by PMAS under various flow conditions. The developed water mist spray nozzle was satisfied to the criteria of NFPA 750, Class 1. The mechanism of the fire suppression by water mist was attributed to the cooling of the fire surface which lead to suppressed of fuel evaporation. It was proved that the water mist spray system under lower pressures could be applied to underground fire protection system
The improvement of Ejector Performance by Inserting a Strut
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 15, issue 7, 2003, Pages 579~585
The ejector system is used for making a vacuum in an enclosed tank. This research represents the method to improve ejector performance by inserting a strut at the center of ejector outlet. This proposed ejector system is so simple and have a low cost to improve the ejector performance. There are many kinds of method for obtaining a lower vacuum pressure. The ejector is consists of nozzle, straight pipe and outlet diffuser and we focused on the outlet diffuser for high ejector performance. The strut is located at the center of ejector outlet diffuser. As the experimental result, we compared the vacuum pressure with and without a strut and without strut, and the ejector performance showed an improvement with 40% or more than the case without strut. This means that the stable fluid low energy loss was obtained by inserting the strut.
Analysis of the Condenser Performance Installed in the Air-Conditioning Plant Room of a High-Rise Building
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 15, issue 7, 2003, Pages 586~594
The performance of the condenser installed in the air-conditioning plant room of a high-rise building was studied numerically. The effect of the draft direction on the performance of an air-conditioner was analyzed. The on-coil temperature of the condenser was investigated by varying the arrangement and location o( the condenser in the air-conditioning plant room. The performance of an air-conditioner was also evaluated by using COP (coefficient of performance) and CGPI (condenser group performance indicator). The condenser in an air-conditioning plant room should be arranged in such a manner that the fan of the condenser is facing the outside of the building to exhaust the hot air directly, The model by which the condenser is located at the lower-left end of an air-conditioning plant room can prevent the hot air from reentering, and allow indrafting of fresh air. When the direction of draft is to the frontal face of the building, the performance of the condenser above 30th floor is degraded.
Comparison of Condenser Characteristics Using R407C and R22 on the Same Inlet Temperature Condition
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 15, issue 7, 2003, Pages 595~603
R407C is considered as an alternative refrigerant to R22 for air conditioners. An experimental investigation was made to study the characteristics of the condensation heat transfer and pressure drop for R407C flowing in a fin-and-tube heat exchanger used for commercial air-conditioning units. Experiments were carried out under the conditions of inlet refrigerant temperature of 6
and refrigerant mass flux varying from 150 to 250 kg/
s for refrigerant side. The inlet air has dry bulb temperature of 35
, relative humidity of 50% and air velocity varying from 0.8 to 1.6 m/s. Experiments show that air velocity increased by 25% is needed for R407C than that of R22 for subcooling temperature of 5
, which resulted in air-side pressure drop increase of 28.8% for R407C as compared to R22. As a consequence, in order to provide the same design condition of a condenser, the fan requires higher electric-power consumption with R407C than that with R22.
Measurement Methods of Latent Heat for PCM with Low Melting Temperature in Closed Tube
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 15, issue 7, 2003, Pages 604~610
Cycle test for developed phase change material (PCM) is necessary in order to analyze the variation of latent heat, which decreases with time by deterioration. 7-history method and measurement using heat flux meter are appropriate for the cycle test in a tube filled with PCM because they do not need an extraction of sample in measuring the heat of fusion. In the present study, these methods were applied to a PCM having a melting point below a room temperature, different from the past studies for PCMs melting above a room temperature. As a result of experiment using pure water as specimen, we can obtain reason-able values for heat of fusion by both methods.
Characteristics of the Air-side Particulate Fouling Materials in Finned-Tube Heat Exchangers of Air Conditioners
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 15, issue 7, 2003, Pages 611~617
The air-side particulate fouling in the heat exchangers of HVAC applications degrades the performance of cooling capacity, pressure drop across a heat exchanger, and indoor air quality. Indoor and outdoor air contaminants foul heat exchangers. The purpose of this study is to investigate the characteristics of the air-side particulate fouling materials in finned-tube heat exchangers of air conditioners. Air conditioners being used in the field such as inns, restaurants, and offices are collected in chronological order in use. Typical fouling materials on the heat exchangers include fibers and dusts ranged from 6.6 to 20.9
in mass median diameter.
