Solar-powered Refrigeration System for Ice Production
The project aims to analyze and design a solar-powered refrigeration system where ice production is used as a case study. The methodology includes studying two parts: refrigeration and solar systems. The refrigeration part is the vapor compression refrigeration system (VCRS) while the solar part is a Photo-voltaic (PV) system. Initially, the refrigeration system is static where no fan is needed, therefore a power input is required to only operate the compressor in the VCRS in order to withstand the refrigeration load to produce 35 kg of ice per day assuming 7 hours of sunshine. For the VCRS, refrigerant R-134a is opted for its availability, low cost, and no-depleting ozone gas.
Modeling and Analysis of Li-ion Cell Venting in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles
Using CFD software, the Li-ion cell thermal runaway can be modeled and cell venting is targeted in order to prevent cell pack failures.
