CHARACTERIZATION OF HEAT TRANSFER AND EVAPORATIVE COOLING OF HEAT EXCHANGERS FOR SORPTION BASED SOLAR COOLING APPLICATIONS
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The content of this Master thesis is the characterization of three different cross unmixed flow heat exchangers. All of the heat exchangers have different inner geometries and dimensions. In order to perform the characterization of these heat exchangers, measurements of heat transfer were done under different conditions: five different temperatures at the inlet of the sorption side, different mass flow for both inlet sides of the heat exchangers.The heat transfer measurements were done with and without applying indirect evaporative cooling in order to find out the influence of indirect evaporative cooling. This research was done with the objective to find out which heat exchanger presents the best performance. The purpose is to install the heat exchanger in the novel solar driven open air SorLuKo system. This system was developed in Fraunhofer ISE and works under the same principe as the ECOS system. The main objective of the SorLuKo system is to dehumidify and cool a dwelling or small office.
