Thermodynamics and Design Principles of Refrigeration Systems

  • B. V. Kosoy
Part of the NATO Science Series book series (NAII, volume 99)


Current paper briefly covers a historical background [28, 32, 33] and presents a general review of basic refrigeration equipment and systems with respect to the application of thermodynamic analysis to mechanical compression and non-mechanical refrigeration cycles, the two most common methods of thermal energy transfer.
