Publication on absorption chillers for negative cooling in SHIP systems
FRIENDSHIP is glad to present the newest paper about multi-effect and multi-stage NH3/H2O absorption chillers for negative cooling in SHIP systems, which is now published online in the AIP Conference Proceedings.
The paper, Numerical study on multi-effect and multi-stage NH3/H2O absorption chillers for negative cooling in SHIP systems, was written by CEA and it is based on the research work on innovative ejector chillers for cold production, done in the framework of FRIENDSHIP.
Indeed, FRIENDSHIP is investigating an innovative absorption chiller design that improves heat and mass transfers, thus performance, at decreased costs, as the needed components are standardized and available in the market. Hence, two variants are simulated for -20°C and -40°C cooling production and two-stage absorption cycles are also simulated for -40°C cooling production.
More specifically, the article presents a numerical comparison identifying the best solutions for the SHIP integration, giving an overview on the operating temperature ranges for each cycle.
Congratulations to the authors!
