Research on Convective Heat Transfer and Mass Transfer of the Evaporator in Micro/Mini-Channel
MetadataShow full item record
With the development of science and technology, various heating and cooling equipment have a development trend of micromation. Micro-fabrication processes make it possible to conduct research on condensation heat transfer in micro-channels. Based on the reviewers on the present household air conditioners, the potential requirements for new heat transfer enhancement used for household air conditioners are discussed. Investigations on condensation and boiling of refrigerants in mini/micro channels have indicated that the evaporator and condenser of air conditioner would be more efficient and more compact by using microchannels, and hence it could improve the coefficient of performance of air conditioners to meet the new energy conversion standards in China. The relationship between condensation heat transfer of refrigerants and surface physical characteristics of the evaporator are pointed out and analyzed in order to achieving the corresponding heat transfer coefficients.
