Abstract

The performance of a combined absorption and ejector refrigerator for which the only irreversibility results from the finite rate of heat conduction is studied. A steady flow approach of finite time thermodynamics is applied to calculate the optimum coefficient of performance (COP). The combined cycle gives an increase of about 40% in the COP compared to that of an absorption cycle. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
