  • The aim of the present work is to bring out an exergy analysis of the hydrocarbon refrigerant mixture of R290/R600a as an alternative to R134a on the performance of a domestic refrigerator which is originally designed to work with R134a. The performance of both refrigerants was evaluated using an exergy analysis. The effects of evaporator temperature on the coefficient of performance (COP), exergy loss, exergic efficiency, and efficiency defect in the four major components of the system for… CONTINUE READING
