Title: Extending ORNL HPDM Capabilities for Design and Optimization of New Refrigerant Blends – FY18 2nd Quarter Milestone Report: Improve HPDM to Adopt New Refrigerant Properties and Correlations

Abstract

We added new refrigerant properties of HFO blends to the ORNL HPDM, including R-22 alternatives, i.e. N20b, DR3, ARM20a, ARM20b, R444B, DR93; R-410A alternatives, i.e. R447A, R447B, R452B, R32, ARM71a; R-134a alternatives, i.e. R1234yf and R1234ze. It can also simulate natural refrigerants, e.g. propane (R290), Isobutane (R600a), CO2 and Ammonia. In addition, latest heat transfer and pressure drop correlations best for low GWP refrigerants were integrated to the equipment design and simulation software.
