  • An investigation of active magnetic regenerators (AMRs) has been performed near room temperature using helium as a heat transfer fluid and a magnetic field of 2 T. To evaluate the impact of the operating conditions, the performance of two reciprocating 90 g gadolinium packed bed regenerators was mapped as a function of the fluid flux and cycle frequency. In addition, two multilayer regenerators of similar mass and dimensions, composed of a layer of gadolinium and a layer of a gadolinium–terbium… CONTINUE READING
