Alternatives in Refrigeration and Air conditioning highlights the issues related to ozone layer depletion and global warming due to use of conventional cooling technologies and refrigerants in the field of Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (RAC). It describes, simulates and analyzes the alternate technologies and alternate refrigerants from energy and exergy point of view. The unconventional and alternative refrigeration technologies viz. Vapor Absorption Refrigeration, Vapor Adsorption Refrigeration, Evaporative Cooling, Desiccant Cooling, Thermoelectric Refrigeration, Thermo Acoustic Refrigeration, Ejector Cooling, Vortex Tube Refrigeration Systems and Metal Hydride Refrigeration etc. are explored in the subject matter of this book.
