Institute of Thermodynamics [IfT]
Experiment "Compression refrigeration cycle“
Overview Experiment I:
The purpose of the laboratory is to get to know the thermodynamic principles, the function and mode of operation as well as the process components and the measuring system of a compression refrigeration cycle.
The laboratory includes the investigation of various operating conditions. With the measured temperatures, pressures and the volume flow of the refrigerant in the experiment, the thermodynamic state variables of the refrigerant in operation, the energy balance and the efficiency of the process are determined.
Experiment "Stirling micro-power plant"
Overview Experiment II:
The purpose of the laboratory is to understand the thermodynamic fundamentals of energy conversion, structure and operation of a Stirling micro-power plant. The laboratory includes the operation of the system and the examination of an operating condition. With the temperatures, flow rates and electrical power read from the system, heat flows, energy balance and efficiency are determined.
