Paper Title:
Comparative Analysis of Heat Transfer Characteristics for CO2 and Conventional Refrigerants
  Abstract

s: The obvious characteristics of transcritical CO2 cycle are that the heat rejection process takes place in the supercritical region (about 8-12Mpa). The heat transfer features of CO2 under supercritical pressure are different from those of the conventional refrigerants. And the heat transfer performances comparison study for supercritical CO2 fluid and the conventional refrigerants are carried out by means of thermo-physical properties analog analysis and experimental results quantitative comparison. The special properties variation of supercritical CO2 fluid makes its heat transfer performance different from the conventional fluids. From the view of properties analysis and quantitative comparison, the heat transfer performance of supercritical CO2 is equivalent to the condensation heat transfer of conventional refrigerants. Although the condensation coefficient is very large since there is phase change and latent heat variation in the condensation process, there is liquid film thermal resistance. While in the supercritical CO2 cooling process, there is no liquid film in existence and the thickness of the boundary layer is very thin. The heat transfer temperature difference is very large, so the heat transfer performance in the supercritical CO2 cooling process is equivalent to that of the condensation heat transfer.
