Unsaturated organic molecules made of hydrogen, fluorine, and carbon are known as hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs). As refrigerants, these organofluorine compounds are interesting. HFOs are olefins, also known as alkenes, as opposed to conventional hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which are saturated.
HFO refrigerants are a more environmentally friendly alternative to CFC, HCFC, and HFC refrigerants since they are classified as having zero ozone depletion potential (ODP) and low global warming potential (GWP). HFOs have shorter tropospheric lifetimes than HCFCs and HFCs as a result of the C=C bond’s reactivity with hydroxyl and chlorine radicals.
Strong interest has been shown in the creation and characterization of new HFO blends for use as refrigerants because of how quickly they react, preventing them from accumulating in the stratosphere and contributing to the destruction of good ozone.
Many of the HFO class’s refrigerants are minimally or not at all flammable, non-toxic, chemically stable, and inert by nature. Many HFOs are suitable for refrigeration at typical temperatures because they have the right freezing and boiling points.
Additionally, they have been used as blowing agents in the manufacture of insulation foams, the food industry, the fabrication of building materials, and other things.
The Global EV Hydrofluoroolefin refrigerants Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
One of the most serious environmental issues affecting our planet right now is global warming. Older generation refrigerants, which when released, stay in the atmosphere for extended periods of time and contribute to global warming, are one of its causes.
This issue might be resolved by switching to environmentally friendly refrigerants from the previous generation’s high global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants. This scenario might need the analysis of novel refrigerants in order to compare their thermodynamic properties to those of refrigerants that have been in use in the past.
In the present research, numerical study was undertaken to investigate thermodynamic performance of specifically low GWP hydrofluoroolefins (HFO) refrigerants for actual vapour compression refrigeration cycle (VCRC) with constant degree of superheat.
