Abstract

In this work, a performance study was achieved on air cooled condenser of an air-conditioning unit. An experimental investigation was carried out on two condenser designs aided by a controlled environmental zone, which was designed and constructed for the current study. The effect of ambient air temperature on the condenser performance was studied by varying the controlled zone air temperature from 30 to 50oC. The first design is a four circuits 5/16" tube diameter condenser and the second is an eight circuits design with the same diameter. The experimental results showed that, an increase in the ambient air temperature has a negative effect on COP due to the decrease in the overall heat rejected, yet has a positive effect on refrigerant side pressure drop.
