Program for Webinar 3: Refrigerant design, selection, verification

The objective of this workshop is to give the participants a view on various aspects related to refrigerants. Refrigerants are chemical compounds having thermodynamic properties that are especially suited for refrigeration systems. Refrigeration systems are an essential process in the industry and home applications as they perform cooling or maintain room temperature at a desired value. A cycle of refrigeration consists of heat exchange (evaporation and condensation), compression and expansion with a refrigerant flowing through the units within the cycle. The selection and design of refrigerants can be formulated as computer-aided molecular and/or mixture design, while, test and verification of a candidate refrigerant require simulation and optimization of the refrigeration cycle operation. From an environmental point of view, selection of the appropriate refrigerant is important because they may impact the environment negatively due to their GWP and ODP values. From an energy point of view, less efficient refrigeration cycle will require more energy and thereby contribute to the indirect emission of carbon dioxide. This webinar will have 3 lectures and a problem solution session with ProREFD, special software developed for refrigerant selection, design, and verification. Prof Sahinidis is the guest speaker in this webinar and his lecture will cover optimization approaches for refrigerant design.

Course Organization

 The Webinars are being organized by the PSE for SPEED office in Bangkok, Thailand. All confirmed registered participants will be sent a link to join the Webinars. The time indicated for each lecture includes Q&A after the lecture. The problem solution lectures will include step by step demonstration of selected problem solutions. There will be Q&A at the end of all lectures and also at the end of the problem sessions. Selected recorded presentations will also be available to subscribers to the PSE for SPEED YouTube channel and Webinar participants will be able to download copies of the presentation slides from the link:
