Abstract:

The CYCLE_D package simulates the vapor compression refrigeration cycles that use pure refrigerants or mixtures of refrigerants. The model can simulate a basic refrigeration cycle as well as a cycle with a liquidline/suction-line heat exchanger. CYCLE_D operates in a user-friendly Windows environment that facilitates evaluating the performance of selected working fluids at different operating conditions. Calculations are based on refrigerant properties as represented in the NIST Reference Fluid Thermodynamic and Transport Properties - REFPROP, Version 7.0.
