Q.1 Q.2 Discuss Bell Coleman cycle and derive an expression in terms of temperature for ideal cycle. A dense air refrigerating system operating between pressures 17.5 bar and 3.5 bar is to produce 10TR. Air leaves the refrigerating coils at -7C and it leaves the air cooler at 15.5C. Neglecting the losses and clearance, For air, Cp = 1.005 KJ/KgK, = 1.4 Calculate 1) The net work done per minute and 2) Coefficient of Performance. Q.3 An air refrigeration system having pressure ratio of 5 takes air at 0C. It is compressed and then cooled to 19C at constant pressure. If efficiency of the compressor is 95% and that of expander is 75%. Determine 1) 2) 3) The refrigerating capacity of the system, if the flow of air is 75 kg/min. The power of the compressor and C.O.P. of the system.

A boot-strap air refrigeration system of 20 TR capacity is used for an aeropplane flying at an altitude of 2000m. The ambient air pressure and temperature are 0.8 bar and 0C. The ram air pressure and temperature are 1.05 bar and 17C. The pressure of air after isentropic compression in the main compressor is 4 bar. The air is now cooled to 27C in another auxiliary heat exchanger and and then expanded isentropically upto the cabin pressure of 1.01 bar. If the air leaves the cabin at 25C and the efficiencies of main compressor and auxiliary compressor and the cooling turbine are 80%, 75 % and 80% respectively, Find 1) Power required to operate the system 2) C.O.P. of the system.


The following data refers to reduced ambient refrigeration system : Ambient air pressure Pressure of ram air Temperature of ram air Pressure at the end of main compressor Effectiveness of heat exchanger Isentropic efficiencies of main compressor Pressure at the exit of auxiliary turbine Efficiency of the auxiliary turbine Pressure in the cabin Temerature of air leaving the cabin Flow rate of air through cabin Find 1) Capacity of the cooling system required 2) Power needed to opeate the system 3) C.O.P. of the system. = 0.8 bar = 1.1 bar = 20C = 3.3 bar = 80% = 80% = 0.8 bar = 85% = 1.013 bar = 25C = 60 kg/min
