Abstract

This paper gives a detailed exergy analysis of a Vapour Compression Refrigeration System with the refrigerants R-134a and HC (mixture of R-290/R-600a). The aim of this paper is to find out the Exergy Analysis, Exergetic efficiency, Exergy Product, Exergy Destruction Ratio (EDR), Co-efficient of performance and 2nd law efficiency for the main components of the system such as compressor, condenser, evaporator and expansion device (throttle valve). The objective of this work is to find out an exergy analysis of the Hydrocarbon refrigerant as an alternative for R-134a. The VCRS performance using R134a will be evaluated for the effect of evaporating temperature on COP, exergetic efficiency and EDR and then compared with Hydrocarbon refrigerant. Due to prevention of GWP (Global Warming Potential), Hydrocarbon and R-134a are used as refrigerants to give better result for domestic refrigerator operation[8] .
