Project Idea for Green Environment : Low Global Warming Refrigerants in Refrigerator [ Mechanical Projects ]

Students, one of our visitor has asked a project idea via comment. The student is doing Mechanical Engineering, he wanted to do a project in Energy Conservation for Green Environment.

Answer : Here is our suggestion or idea which any one can take into their mind and enhance or do new version of the project.

Mechanical Students or even Electronics Students can take this into action and bring most innovative solution for the Global Problem of Global Warming.

Reducing Global Warming Effects from Househod Refrigerator:

In this project what you're going to do is , in our home - the Fridge / Refrigerator uses coolant : Refrigerant HFC-134a which is commonly used in all our systems.

But , we also know that the Refrigerator is one of the main source for Global Warming from its hazardous emission of HFC .

So you've to search/look for an alternative to replace the default HFC-134 a refrigerant with the one which has low Global Warming effects in our Environment.

Friends , this project is very essential and if you've think differently , you may achieve great things.

I've attached few things which may be usefull for you. All you've todo is just download the Abstracts and then analyse the thing . Think .. Think .. Think.. You'll get an idea.

Steady-state and transient thermodynamic models of the refrigeration system were created in order to predict the performance of household refrigerators using different refrigerant types. The models were validated with experimental data taken from a commercially available household refrigerator charged with HFC-134a.

The models were then used to simulate the drop-in performance of several alternative low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants in the household refrigerator. The alternative refrigerant of strongest interest was HFO-1234yf, which was evaluated as a direct drop-in replacement for HFC-134a. HFO-1234yf was found to be a suitable replacement for HFC-134a, with similar performance characteristics and a decrease in overall system efficiency of less than 2%. A parametric study of HFC-134a/HFO-1234yf blends was also conducted in order to evaluate their potential as non-flammable, low GWP replacements for HFC-134a.
