Abstract Recent ejector studies have focused on the design and performance of the two-phase ejector and its effect on the performance of the ejector cycle. However, recent experimental work has shown that the effect of evaporator design on ejector cycle performance can also be quite significant. In this paper, a numerical model of a microchannel air-to-refrigerant evaporator, capable of accounting for heat transfer and pressure drop effects, is used to investigate the effect that different… CONTINUE READING
