Due to the lower energy consumption in the evaporative cooling, it is the subject of numerous studies. Evaporative cooling considers a green cooling system which does not require any chemical reaction and does not depend on the hazardous material. The present study mainly focused on parametric analysis of an indirect evaporative cooling system usin...
An experimental investigation of thermoelectric cooling using a Peltier element to dehumidify moist air under controlled, high relative humidity conditions has been conducted. The influence of the cold side heatsink orientation on the water collection rate was experimentally determined. One finned heatsink-fan combination was used on the heat rejec...

Energy consumption is rising around the world and most of the activities in the developed countries are dependent on electric energy. Thermal energy storages are one the ways to reduce energy consumption and balance the electrical power usage during the day. With thermal energy storages, or to be precise, with ice storage systems, energy usage peak...

The influence of two isothermal blocks placed in a low position φm=0.18π in a cylindrical heat exchanger is numerically studied. The governing equations are discretized by the centered finite difference method using the ADI scheme. By varying Rayleigh number range between 1000 and 10000, we are interested in the local Nusselt number and the local e...

The influence of TiO2 nanoparticles with different volume concentrations in water on heat transfer, friction and thermal performance is explored, and finite volume method is used to clarify the heat transfer in a tube inserted with twisted tape (TT). In the experiment, swirling tubes are generated by TT insert with the twisted ratio (y/w) of 3.0 in...
In this paper, we present an assessment of methods for estimating and comparing the thermodynamic performance of working fluids for organic Rankine cycle power systems. The analysis focused on how the estimated net power outputs of zeotropic mixtures compared to pure fluids are affected by the method used for specifying the performance of the heat ...
