A class of internally irreversible refrigeration cycles

  title={A class of internally irreversible refrigeration cycles},
  author={Mohand A. Ait-Ali},
A Carnot-like irreversible refrigeration cycle is modelled with two isothermal and two non-adiabatic, irreversible processes. The generic source of internal irreversibility, measured by the Clausius inequality, is a general irreversibility term which could include any heat leaks into the Joule - Thompson expansion valve, the evaporator and compressor cold boxes. This cycle is optimized first for maximum refrigeration power and maximum refrigeration load, then for maximum coefficient of… CONTINUE READING
