Analysis of power and cooling cogeneration using ammonia-water mixture

Publication year: 2010brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 10 November 2010brRicardo Vasquez, Padilla , Gökmen, Demirkaya , D. Yogi, Goswami , Elias, Stefanakos , Muhammad M., RahmanbrDevelopment of innovative thermodynamic cycles is important for the efficient utilization of low-temperature heat sources such as solar, geothermal and waste heat sources. This paper presents a parametric analysis of a combined power/cooling cycle, which combines the Rankine and absorption refrigeration cycles, uses ammonia-water mixture as the working fluid and produces power and cooling simultaneously. This cycle, also known as the Goswami Cycle, can be used as a bottoming cycle using waste heat from a conventional power cycle or as an independent cycle using solar or geothermal energy. A thermodynamic study of power and cooling cogeneration is presented. The performance…

    It depends upon how well your air coodtiinning works and whether or not you have a 2nd story to cool. It is usually advised to have it off while you are gone, but if your system has trouble cooling when the temps are higher than 80 degrees, you will have to leave it on, otherwise, your home will not be cool by the time you go to bed. Also, it is very hard to cool the hotter upstairs. If you have a timer on your thermostat, you can time it to come on an hour or two before you get home so it will be cool when you walk in the door.
