One single such invention was that of fire. This gave birth to the concept of energy and its transfer. And with time, man realized that if he can increase the energy of any system, he can decrease the same too, and keep it on reduced levels.
Before the first millennium, the Chinese cooled their food and drinks with harvested ice. The Romans, Greeks and Hebrews placed large amounts of snow into storage pits dug into the ground covered with wood and straw for insulation. And in , cooling of wine by adding chemicals such as sodium nitrate and potassium nitrate to water was first recorded. Refrigeration is a process to keep a cool element cool or to reduce the temperature of one element below that of the other.
The refrigeration process is, in essence then, a reverse heat engine where heat is taken from a cold element to be transferred to a warm element, generally by adding work to the system.
In a heat engine, work was done by the system; so in order to do the reverse; work must be done to the system. This work input is traditionally mechanical work. The schematic diagram of a heat engine In , an American physician, John Gorrie, built a working prototype of a vapour compression refrigeration system, but it was a commercial failure.
The vapour compression refrigeration system VCRS will be described in sections to come. But the basic problem in the vapour compression system is that of compressing the vapour which has a high specific volume, and therefore demands a large amount of work.
If this compression work gets eliminated, a lot of energy can be saved. Since then, many efforts have been made to reduce the power consumption of refrigeration units. The hydrogen will be used to regulate the vapor pressure of the refrigerant, and thus, to decrease the saturation temperature of the refrigerant and to produce cooling effect. This system will not require any electricity or mechanical work input, it will rather run only on heat. Exhaustive theoretical mathematical analysis of the system was done and the basis of that, the parts used and required dimensions were worked out along with the quantities of the working fluids required.
A three dimensional scale model of the system was prepared using rendering software such as Pro- E and SolidWorks and the system is expected to work effectively if made into a working model.
This phenomenon is known as the Peltier effect, and it is this effect that is used in a thermoelectric refrigeration system to produce cooling. A thermoelectric refrigerator comes equipped with only a thermoelectric plate, to facilitate the heat transfer, a fan, and fins to take the excess heat from the thermoelectric plate.
Figure 1. Thermoelectric modules are constructed from a series of tiny metal cubes of dissimilar exotic metals which are physically bonded together and connected electrically. Solid-state thermoelectric modules are capable of transferring large quantities of heat when connected to a heat absorbing device on one side and a heat dissipating device on the other.
Another advantage of thermoelectric refrigeration units is that they do not use any harmful refrigerants to facilitate refrigeration, which makes them environmentally friendly and safe. Thermoelectric refrigeration units do not wear out or deteriorate with use making them more applicable for military and aerospace purposes. Thermoelectric modules can also be reversed and be used for heating instead of cooling. Thermoelectric plate diagram 1. This popularity is due to the fact that the cycle is relatively efficient, inexpensive, and compact.
A vapor-compression system is made up of four major components, a compressor, condenser, thermal expansion valve, and an evaporator. A liquid refrigerant circulates through the system, absorbing and releasing heat.
The refrigerant enters the compressor as a saturated vapor as shown at point 1 in figure 4. As the refrigerant is compressed it increases in temperature and leaves the compressor as a superheated vapor. The superheated vapor enters the condenser, as seen in point 2 , which is generally a coiled or finned tube cooled by air or water.
At this point the refrigerant releases heat to the surroundings through convection and changes phase from a superheated vapor to a saturated liquid as the refrigerant cools to below its saturation temperature.
This change in temperature corresponds to the enthalpy of vaporization of the given refrigerant. The refrigerant only partially evaporates because the cooling produced from initial evaporation lowers the refrigerant temperature back to below its saturation temperature.
The cold liquid-vapor mixture continues on to the evaporator, point 4 , where it absorbs heat and fully vaporizes.
This is the final stage, which accounts for the cooling in the refrigeration cycle. The vapor then enters the compressor, completing the cycle.
Because a small amount of refrigerant liquid can produce a large amount of cooling, the system can be compact and still be efficient. This allows it to be both space saving and inexpensive. Despite all of the advantages, the vapor-compression refrigeration process still has few disadvantages. Many of the vapor-compression systems use hydro chlorofluorocarbon HCFC refrigerants. These refrigerants contribute to the depletion of the o-zone layer. HFCs contribute to global warming and are generally less efficient.
Two major types of absorption refrigeration system design exist: the two fluid and the three fluid absorption system. In a two fluid system, an expansion valve is used to cause a large pressure drop, which causes the liquid refrigerant to evaporate.
A three fluid system uses a third fluid to facilitate the expansion by means of partial pressures. The key processes in an absorption refrigeration system are the absorption and desorption of the refrigerant. A simple absorption system has five main components: the generator, the condenser, the evaporator, the absorber, and the solution heat exchanger.
The flow of the refrigerant is through each of these parts in the different kinds of absorption system is given in each section. This system is an ammonia-water refrigeration cycle system that is composed of an evaporator, a refrigerant heat exchanger, an absorber, a pump, two flow restrictors expansion valves , a solution heat exchanger, a generator, a rectifier, and a condenser.
The cycle can be broken into different flows, one comprising of the ammonia-water mixture and the other comprising of the ammonia vapor alone. Points are the cycle of the ammonium hydroxide solution, and the rest of the points constitute the ammonia vapor cycle. The solution rich in refrigerant at point 1 is pumped to higher pressure through the solution heat exchanger 2 into the generator 3 where heat is added and an ammonia-water vapor mixture is sent to the rectifier 13 , and the solution poor refrigerant 4 is sent back through the solution heat exchanger to the absorber.
The ammonia-water vapor is purified in the rectifier by condensing the water vapor in the mixture into liquid. The pure ammonia vapor is sent to the condenser 7 and the water liquid is sent back to the generator The ammonia vapor loses heat to the surrounding by convection as it goes through the condenser and is cooled into liquid ammonia 8.
The ammonia liquid is passed through the refrigerant heat exchanger 9 for further cooling, and then passed through a flow restrictor 10 where it experiences a sudden drop in pressure and evaporates because this new pressure is less than its saturation pressure. The ammonia is now a saturated vapor at a temperature that corresponds to this new pressure.
The saturated ammonia vapor is sent to the evaporator where heat from the refrigerator is absorbed. The ammonia vapor 11 goes through the heat exchanger once again, but this time to absorb heat, before returning to the absorber 12 where it is absorbed into the water and the process repeats again. Fig 1. Table 1. Of the various refrigeration cycles, the Hydrogen actuated absorption system is the only one that does not require electricity or mechanical parts to operate. It is run entirely by heat.
The key is its use of Hydrogen, used to regulate the partial pressure of the refrigerant, and therefore, its saturation temperature. The system remains at constant total pressure and eliminates the use of expansion valves. Most three fluid absorption systems use ammonia as their refrigerant and hydrogen as the 3rd fluid. A generic diagram of a hydrogen actuated absorption refrigeration system that uses ammonia and hydrogen is shown in Figure 1.
Beginning with point 1 the seven stations have the following characteristics: at 1 the application of heat vaporizes the strong ammonia-water solution up into the bubble pump. At 2 the solution and gas passes into the separator where the water vapor condenses to liquid and passes through a separate series of tubes back to the absorber.
Superheated ammonia vapor now rises to the condenser, leaving a small amount of weak ammonia-water solution pooled in the separator. At 3 the ammonia is traveling through the condenser, releasing heat to the surroundings and condensing back to a liquid state. At 4 liquid ammonia meets with hydrogen and enters the evaporator.
Here, the partial pressures of the hydrogen and ammonia lower the saturation temperature of the liquid ammonia, causing the ammonia to evaporate. This expansion lowers the temperature of the hydrogen-ammonia mixture, allowing it to absorb heat from the refrigerator compartment, which provides cooling.
At 4A the hydrogen-ammonia mixture exits the evaporator into the absorber in a gaseous state. In the absorber the gaseous ammonia and hydrogen meet with liquid water. The ammonia is less dense than hydrogen, causing it to sink and consequently accumulate under the hydrogen.
This increases its partial pressure and induces a phase change back to liquid. Ammonia and water are capable of forming a solution together as ammonia is soluble in water.
Hydrogen is incapable of mixing and continues to circulate back to the top of the evaporator as a pure gaseous substance. The ammonia and water solution exit the absorber and travel to the generator. It then begins the cycle again. Most interesting thing about this cycle is the lack of moving parts and electricity to drive them.
This creates a very independent unit that can continue to run indefinitely so long as it is provided heat.
To my knowledge, the book Absorption Chillers and Heat Pumps is the most comprehensive in covering all [of] the essential knowledge in the areas of absorption chillers and heat pumps. These include fundamentals, working fluid selections, single and double stage absorption systems, applications and modellings. Keith E. This research focus was motivated by his work at Battelle Memorial Institute, Columbus, Ohio, where he was involved in building and running custom absorption refrigeration cycles under contract to the US Department of Energy, among others. Subsequent to those experiences, he joined the University of Maryland, College Park, where he was the director of the Sorption Systems Consortium, which was funded by various companies.

Бледная, жуткая в тусклом свете мониторов фигура застыла, грудь шефа тяжело вздымалась. - Ком… мандер! - вскрикнула она от неожиданности. - Хейл в Третьем узле. Он напал на. - Что.
У них всегда все было в полном порядке. - Все когда-то бывает в первый раз, - бесстрастно ответил Бринкерхофф. Она встретила эти слова с явным неодобрением. - Я все проверяю дважды. - Ну… ты знаешь, как они говорят о компьютерах. Когда их машины выдают полную чушь, они все равно на них молятся. Мидж повернулась к нему на своем стуле.
Мидж… пошли. Это личный кабинет директора. - Это где-то здесь, - пробормотала она, вглядываясь в текст. - Стратмор обошел фильтры. Я в этом уверена. - Она подошла вплотную к окну. Бринкерхофф почувствовал, как его тело покрывается холодным .
Беккер поставил коробку на пол и подошел к столу. Наклонился и осмотрел пальцы левой руки.
