Title: Evaluation of Prototype Membrane Based Air Conditioner

Abstract

A prototype cooling system that uses water as refrigerant was built and sent to Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) for laboratory performance evaluation. The prototype uses electrochemical compressor technology. The compressor consists of nanostructured polymer membranes that transfer water molecules isothermally. Performance evaluation at ORNL was aimed at characterizing the cooling performance of the prototype at different evaporating and condensing temperatures. Evaluation concluded that the compressor performed as expected, however, the integrated cooling system did not provide cooling.
